    best springs for launching??

    I've heard of some people using the softer stock V6 springs in the back for better traction. I already have adjustable phb, lca and lca relocation brackets. I'm saving for koni shocks and I would really like to lower my car, but don;t want to sacrifice too much traction.

    What are the best springs to use?

    Thanks! I guess I'll stick to the 4x4 look if its gona keep me sticky... can I use the lower setting on the koni's or will this also adversely affect traction?

    I saw in some other threads that the Koni are on back order. I almost have enough saved... any idea on when they will be available again?

    Either way.. I imagine it would be best to order them ASAP or risk having to wait even longer

    We currently have some Koni's in stock. Shoudln't cause you any issues, I've got guys as fast as 1.50 60's on them (faster than the drag shocks he had previously).
