    sounds too good to be true-does this system suck or what? I don't know anything about Vogtland.

    We used to carry all the major name brand springs and the Vogtland springs are the only springs we will now sell do the quality. They have a spring wire made specifically to their specifications which allow them to stress them more than any other company. This yields a spring which weighs less giving you less unsprung weight. The KYB shocks are something I would not recommend for those springs though. They do not have the ability to dampen the spring properly. At the very least you will want a Tokico but the Koni's would be a better shock for performance. If you have any direct questions feel free to Call or Email.

    We are also running a special on the Koni 4th/3rd generation shock packages currently. You will need to PM us for pricing as the price is below Koni's allowed pricing.
