    Excuse me for asking, but I was searching for info about the hose mod on the springs that I hear people talk about. Couldn't find it in a search or in a sticky. Can anyone give me a link to it? Thanks

    Hose mod is done on the rear springs, what it is, is the removal of the upper isolator and replacement with heater hose wrapped around the top coil of the spring. This has the effect of dropping the rear ride height by approx 3/4" it is generally done in conjunction with using the lower perch on a set of front Koni shocks, which does the same for the front.
