Project Super Neon, Part 2

Springs & Bars

Karl Brauer
Mar 1, 1999

For our project Super Neon, we skipped right over the typical first step (wheels and tires) and went directly to the suspension. Don't worry, though, we have a killer combination of rolling stock lined up for our next installment.

In the meantime, we had handling guru Jeff Biane of Suspension Techniques install a set of powdercoated springs and bars that gave our already-nimble Neon a truly sports-car feel. The springs also resulted in about a 1-inch drop that should accent the future wheel/tire and body-kit design nicely.

We'll detail our Neon's upgrade here, but remember that Suspension Techniques offers a wide range of performance parts for many import and domestic vehicles. All kits come with easy-to-follow instructions and, with the exception of a spring compressor, don't require exotic tools or special skills.

Follow along as we begin the process of turning one of today's hottest-selling daily drivers into a weekend road racer.
