    Advice on planned suspension upgrade

    I'm thinking about going with the Strano/Koni 4/4 setup on my car but hopefully I can get some input before I take yet another plunge on this car. I have the MWC Fab 9" and long tube headers (mated to a Kooks ORY). I'm worried about the extra weight of the rear as well as ground clearance with the headers. Any advice before I drop the coinage on this upgrade?

    The weight of the rear is unsprung so it won't change the ride height.

    If you're at stock height you can expect 1.2-1.5 inch lowering with the Strano's. If your exhaust can handle that, you're good to go.

    The quality dampers will help control the system better than lower quality ones.

    I have the same exact set-up as you and am lowered on Strano's with Koni 4/4's. I have never scraped.
