Tanabe NF210 Lowering Springs

Hey CHR Owners,
Tanabe USA used my car to test out their nf210 lowering springs on my car this past week. So far the ride quality is pretty close to stock. It's very comfortable and makes the car look a whole lot better.

Check the out their blog on the more-japan blog website.
(since i'm new to this site i cannot post pictures or links, if someone can post a link i'm sure that will help)

Ah, yes the actual consumer end to it. Didn't realize they were so into racing which is a good look since to me Tanabe was a budget brand, they still are but now my views of them aren't so low

Stock/After

These look really nice. Not super low by far but just enough to get rid of that gap and have it still fully functionable. Interested to see how it feels though

Oh, that's the first time I've heard of Tanabe as a budget brand. But I guess that's subjective, since they only make aftermarket suspension and exhaust parts. From what I know, they are one of the few Japanese brands that still manufacture their products at their factory in Japan. While a lot of their competitors went over seas to China to have their products made.
They also produce wheels through their sister company SSR Wheels.

Talking with the R&D guys over there... I was surprised to find out that they have a huge presence in JGTC and Formula Drift. They use to sponsor Vaughn Gittin JR when he drove his s13 and Chris Forsberg.

It drives just like stock. My wife drove the car and didn't even realize anything had changed.

Glad to hear your wife didn't realize anything changed. The madam on my end of things here is super picky so I'm going to be slightly worried.. either way just for the way it looks, I'll risk getting my head bitten off haha.

Unless... someone comes out with coilovers around the same time or before I get in my C-HR

I guess i'm not entirely surprised since these are just springs and often in a CUV springs don't impact ride quality that much. Its really when you go for either aggressive springs and spring rates or aggressive coilovers that it gets to bumpy.

Lifting C-HR

I am thinking about lifting my C-HR. I have dragged mine a couple of times. I would like to add about 2 ". Has anyone done this?

I'm sure someone will come out with some sort of life kit for it. Didn't the C-HR have some sort of edition that was more tailored to off-road looks which had taller springs?
