Springs combination

Question : Can I use a combination of sport spring for the rear of my Proton Iswara, while the front remains using original spring?

Answer : Vehicle handling is a combination of factors such as spring rates, shock absorber settings, stabilisers and tyres. While I should not generalise by saying you cannot use a combination of a stock front spring and a sports rear, it is highly unlikely such a combination would work because the rear springs would most likely be stiffer than the front and there would be a tendency for the car to oversteer. Again, I am making a guess as I do not know the exact settings. My advice is to change all the springs to the "sport" ones and to follow the advice of the spring manufacturer on the settings as they would have done tests and can advise you best on the set-up. The alternative is to work it out by trial and error, but unless you have the facilities of a racetrack, you really will not be able to get it done properly.
