I installed the ZENN springs on my 2.2. There is no soild review so i thought i would give you mine. Some people call the Zenn spring tein knockoffs. I installed the spring with the FE5 front struts. i personally have never dropped a car, i found this super easy and did it in a 2 hours. Currently at 132xx miles we will see if they sag later...

QUALITY:
I Like the springs they gave a great drop, some people would refer to them as "bumpy" i would say a lil bit bouncy but still good ride. Am very happy with the product and i do recommend it for those who never experencied other springs. I plan to ride in a cobalt with another brand to see difference for you all (if my struts blow i will post how long it was til they do)

DROP:
Rear stock height:27.5"
After Drop:25.75"

PICS





Front stock height:27.5"
After Drop:25.5"






BEFORE:




AFTER:



And tada in the end FOLLOW TORQUE SPECS!!!(i did fix this)


Some more pics:





And Thank you:)

shocks? no i change the struts

LS/LT=FE1
SS/Sport=FE3
SC/TC=FE5

I placed mine with the FE5 struts so they would handle the drop better then the FE1

it could wait, your shock/structs could last up to a year after you drop it but you got to drive safe.

Whats the deal with people cutting their springs ? I see that has got real popular now , I feel as if that would totally destroy ride quality, Does any one know anything of this ?

I have watching some on Ebay. But I think some of the companies on the forums have them as well. And you may get a better price.

do you put the springs on without the shocks or did you just not get to that yet when you took the picture? I want to get these lowering springs, but I don't want to drive around without shocks

The rears are so easy to do, you just remove one bolt from each shock to put them in.

Are you talking about the struts mattsoftnet? The fronts are struts the rear are shocks. You can't install the fronts without stuts. It's an assembly you pull out, then remove the stock springs, then re-install the assembly.
