I just bought Tein SS coilovers and the guy before had the rear spring for the front and use rear ground control spring for the rear,,, lets say its not a good combo at all ,,ride bouncy...im thinking of gettin new springs for all four but not sure what spring rate would be nice and stiff but not rough...does anyone knows of a good spring rate combo for front and rear

basically why not just buy the springs that come with the SS's? their paired together for a reason usually the ride should be smooth on moderate settings, and reasonably firm on full hard, my SS's are great compromise for firmness and comfort throughout the adjustment range. that's just my opinion.
