    I was also thinking shocks too maybe around income tax time though. On the shocks subject I got a dumb question I want to lower the car in the future will shocks for a lowered car need to be different from stock height?

    uhhhhhh- how much lowering you talking about? Generally some billsteins or konis are going to lower it a bit as it is with the complimenting springs, you might want to talk to Sam Strano on that, the call is free and he extremely knowledgeable just be sure you have your facts in order and the overall purpose of the car.

    Thats what I'll do when the time comes. I just don't want to dump alot of money into shocks I'll have to replace if I lower the car later. I don't want to slam it or nothing just maybe an inch to inch and a half.

    I dont know about the 2 point sfc but when I put in the 3 point UMI bolt ins I could really notice when I did a burn out! Before it seemed to wana twist and the leave it a little different from side to side. After the cars rear would just kinda suck down and feel strait and even. Much more solid.

    Shocks and springs no a shock is a shock, but lowering takes away the engineering mathmatics of it so lowering springs and stock socks are just going to wear them out and be not quite right. So better shocks huge difference over stock, can handel lowered conditions and koni lifetime warranty Springs, strano's are good and same price range as the rest
