    Well your main problem is that those stiff springs toasted the stock shox probably in a few hundred miles and the toe is all messed up cuz it probably wasn't aligned properly after the spring job. What I'm tryin to figure out is WHY anyone would put springs on w/o doing the shox with KYB or KONI's or at least a decent set of Bilsteins...heck, it's a nasty job. A better setup is to replace the shox with Koni SA's, put the stock springs back on and adjust the Koni's to get the feel/handling you want. U can also lower by an inch too using the stock springs.

    Oh, and ALWAYS the first thing you do after changin front suspension is get it aligned. It'll be really messed up till you do and tires are expensive.
