Anyone know of Non Lowering Performance Springs for V70R?

I'm a big fan of dual rate, and run on other race and performance cars, but cannot find anything for R that doesn't drop more than .5" I've checked most of the big names already: King, H&R, Ebach, Dobinson...

TIA

TME through Viva would be your best bet.

TME is going to be a drop (~1"?) but they're ride quality is much better than anything else out there.

I’ve driven R’s with Eibachs, KW’s, BC’s, and TME’s. KW’s are by far the best.
I have TME’s on my S60R and they’re my second favorite. They’re not a huge drop and feel comparable to stock 4c springs.

I wasn't a big fan of the KW's on the V70R. The ride was overly harsh (adjusted to softest setting). New 4Cs with TMEs on sport mode feels better to me.

Maybe there was something wrong with your KWs?

I went from brand new 4C+TMEs to KWs. Waaaay more comfortable on the KWs. The 4Cs would crash over bumps, the KWs dampen it a bit more. I have the settings fairly stiff, the car reacts to changes in the road far more. However, hitting actual bumps, it's far softer than the 4C setup that I had.
