    Is that for the front, or front and rear?

    If that price is just for the front, which i think it is then you can do a lot better for that price!

    I would look at the Global West kit.

    Never heard of that kit, but I'll take a look.

    Thanks, so it is for both the front and rear. How does it handle? Any issues? How low does it sit off the ground?

    Does the rear assembly still fit really loose in the factory spring seats?
    And does the rear spring still become loose at full drop?
    Those are two reasons the rear kit leaves a lot to be desired, at least when I had mine.

    as low as you want it to sit depending on your mood .. lol. I got 550/175 (although Strano recommended 150) rates and with the Strano sway bars, it handles like it's on rails! My buddy with a Miata was impressed, so that says something I guess ... lol

    The only issue is the rear springs are kinda short (due to the lift jacks) so if you lift the car up from the body, the springs tend to get out of alignment with the spring perch on top, so you've gotta make sure the springs are aligned with the perch when you lower it. A minor annoyance I'm willing to live with.

    yup. Now if they came out with a coil over for the rear too; like the Strange drag shocks, it'll be pimp!
