    yes. you need to call sam at stranoparts.com and talk to him and he will go over all that with you when you order.

    treat stressful situation like a dog. if you can't eat or hump it, then piss on it and walk away.

    keep your foot in it,till you see god

    they're valved for stock height/rate springs, so they will not dampen a lowering spring properly

    If you don't have the money to do a decent quality shock just use the stockers if you are willing to put up with a harsher ride.

    I got kybs with the sportlines and it rides great. over 20k km and it still rides great (for what i paid). I can't say they are a great shock because my brothers stock 97 ss with lvl 2 slp suspension option was superb with the sportlines so I know the bilsteins kick their butt.

    I wish I didnt buy kybs and just kept the stock shocks. No shocks are designed for a 2 inch drop so i wouldnt really want to spend $1k just to know the lowering springs are killing them. I had custom length shocks made for my vette by Bilstein that were shorter by 1.5 inches when fully extended. Works like a charm.

    If you have the money and don't want to regret your decision. Listen to Mr.Strano its what he does.
