    I'm interested in what people have to say just b/c I am not sure. 1.6 and 1.7" seems like a huge drop to me.

    Most lowering springs I've ever seen drop 1" to 1.25".

    Anything more than that may really play havoc on your suspension geometry..not sure.

    Im looking into these myself. Ive been looking at reviews on these. THey seem like they cater more to Imports (japanese mostly) but most if not all the reviews are pretty favorable. Even better than AGX's. As a matter of fact, AGX's has horrible reviews and have completely swaded me (with the help of Y2K ) from buying KYB's.
    I would guess these fall some where close to bilstiens, but cant say. Not sure about the springs. Havnt realy heard of Springtech before. Im gonna look into these. Hell, if i hear enough about them, i might try them out. Shocks and springs for $400 range isnt that bad. If anything, i still want BMR springs, if i dont like the shacks and spring combo due to hieght or bounce issues, can try out other springs. Has anyone ever tried these?

    Adding to this thread if you dont mind,
    I found tokicos with two different kinds of lowing springs.
    Ones with Springtech and others with Vogtlands. how are these setups?
