Swift made Sport Springs keeps your quality ride you get from showroom, and adds a sporty feel and lower ride height for sport driving enthusiasts and style minded drivers who demand only the best.
- Keep or improve a smooth comfortable ride
- Increase handling, control, and performance
- Lower the vehicle within the each vehicle’s usable stroke
Most end users understand and had experiences with the typical harsh and uncomfortable ride from lowering springs. Performance on lowering springs is often overlooked by manufactures because most lowering springs are design to cater appearance oriented customers. The results are usually bumpy corning that cause a decrease in traction, or excessive worn shocks cause by lowering the vehicle beyond the usable stroke. The problems with most lowering springs are quite simple. First is due to the lowering amount, and second, the coiling design of the spring.
So what is the difference between Swift and other manufactures? I always thought that springs are just springs?
We utilize a less coil design to create a much more responsive spring. With fewer coils, we can completely eliminate the chances of coil binding and increase the amount of usable stroke. Also, fewer coils on lowering springs will create a faster reaction speed towards any road conditions. So instead of skipping on the harsh road surface, the spring will reacted to the road surface as needed.
Swift developed each Sport Springs application based on each vehicles unique characteristic. So a Luxury car will keep its luxury ride, and sports car will handle like a sport car.

Wish my XT had come with these from the factory. Firm, controlled with good ground clearance. I did this at 106k along with KYB's at each corner and group N mounts in the front. As the original owner it's rejuvenated my interest in the car.
Took my foz from bouncy and floaty to a corner eating machine love them
Bought a set of these 20K miles ago and changed them with the struts. Huge improvement over stock suspension without sacrificing too much clearance. Great price from MAP too.
Purchased these springs to go with my wrx wagon suspension swap on to a forester XT. Car rides well and handles great. Great transaction everything was as advertised and shipped in a timely manner. Will definitely purchase more parts in the future.
Bought this to firm up the factory suspension, works great, not overly expensive either.
