UUC Tuned Springs Installed

Had my UUC Tuned Springs installed last week over at MAC (who did a great job as usual); they're still settling in a bit, but overall I am very pleased. Here is a quick photo, and sorry for the picture quality.




Im hopefully getting a set of authentic 18" AC Schnitzers soon That will fill the gap a little more. Let me know what you guys think

The UUC springs give the right amount of drop, not sure why more people don't have them. Looks great!

UUC "Tuned" Springs?

LOL @ companies that call their products "tuned" - they are just springs from any of the major spring manufacturers that UUC orders with what they believe to be an optimum rate. It's not possible to "tune" springs.

Thanks! Yeah I dont know why people spend over $1000 just to drop their cars. I love the way mine is settling in now, and the car is a little stiffer.

They probably tune the spring rates to the OEM shocks...which they state on the website...to ensure that the UUC springs/OEM shock combo will be reliable while enhancing performance.

If you want to split hairs, maybe call them UUC "matched to the OEM shocks" springs but it doesn't sound quite as catchy as UUC Tuned Springs.
