I ran 175# 14" on mine for a couple of seasons, I was able to lower the car 2" with no hassles at all.

175 wow that must have been a really soft ride.

im thinking of going 300# , 10" long

do you think that will be too stiff or a ride?

Everything I do is drag related, I had no issues on the street at all. I think 300 would be a tough ride, unless you are road racing I see no need to run that heavy of a spring. I drove mine daily with 175#'s and had no sway bar, not that I reccomend it but I did. :noes:

I've got them.
For street, 300 in the front, 200 in the back.
height isn't a concern like on regular springs, it comes with the right one's.

which struts are you getting?

how can you adjust the ride height? How low of a stance can you go with coilovers?

low enough to have a body part on the ground... :hammer:

and you adjust the ride height with a spanner wrench.

the parts are ordered and on the way.
mm coilover kit with 300#, 10" long
bilstein struts
and I got a set of 03-04 cobra control arms.

anothere thing i noticed at the maximum motorsports site.
is that there is bumpstops if you get the koni struts
and none if u get the bilstein.

anyway ill get the parts installed a soon as i get them
and ill let u guys know what i think.

Hmmmn, I'm not sure on that bump stop. there is one on my koni set, on the front. maybe the body is longer on them?
The Billisteen's are double adjustable so you'll like that :)
adjusting the height to just where you want it is Nice, :) :) :) :)

you installing them yourself?
