Exclamation opinion on SVE lowering springs

I was looking at some lowering springs on the LRS website. I've never heard of the brand and was wondering if anyone has used them and how good they are? The brand is SVE

I think that SVE is LRS's own proprietary brand which would be some other manufacture's product but rebadged.

Looking at the same parts - the package w/ the springs and KYBs. Did you ever end up buying the kit? If so, what did you think?

I'd also be curious of the specs on those springs - they don't list the spring rate or if they are progressive or linear...

Anyone else tried them or know someone who did?

I know this is an old thread but I purchased SVE lower control arms from LRS and they were junk (bushings were shot in 500 miles of driving) I'd stay away BTW...LRS was very good about replacing them with something else.

I doubt the control arms @ LRS are made by the same company as the springs.

I'm told SVE is made in china, but I could be wrong. I think LRS is a vendor sponsor here aren't they? You could ask them.
