I've never heard anything bad about the goldlines, and lots of people have um but other than that. ..just remember the difference between 1.7" and 1.3" is like 3/8's of an inch and will not be noticable

The guy who i bid on his springs changed the shipping and I cancelled my bid, he said it was going to be free and now he says he can't do it.

What springs should I get, and how low should i go? 2" drop? Would 1.5" be enough?
Tein SS man coilovers never cheap out on suspension!!

I have the same set up as proline's with stock struts. It looks like in the first pic that it is a little lower in the rear, after replaceing the struts did it correct that problem? It's hard to tell in the second pic.

the lower you go, the stiffer the spring rates on those after market springs NEED TO BE. otherwise you will always bottom out and blow the hell outta the shocks.

after going to 18" and changing to tokico's everything was much better before it was just too low and sucked for ride quality
