    You're talking about the threaded/adjustable lower front spring seats, correct?

    (1) They allow you to set the ride height exactly where you want it.
    (2) They're a lot lighter than the factory sized springs(at least for our cars).
    (3) You can get them in almost any spring rate(in 25lb.in. increments),
    and length.

    Also understand this:
    If you are getting them to adjust the ride height, that's fine, make sure that once you get the ride height where you want it, get the front tires aligned.
    Every time you change the ride height for the front end, you'll want to get another front wheel alignment unless you really don't care about tread life.

    Very true!
    I ruined a almost new tire in less than 2weeks that way!
