    I suppose that only time will tell with the dropzones. Maybe they will sag or maybe they will not. I say get them and try them out...see how you like them. What do you have to loose, you get the for $95 and sell them if you hate them for $50. I was a victim of marketing and paid $339 for ground control and they are good, but the Dropzones are problaly as good as the GC's. Try them out, but make sure you have a good shock (Koni or Tokico) as well.

    thats not really true at all man. Dropzone is made by Skunk2 I believe. Name brands can put out low cost products.

    yea, I agree with that, they are a diff design and quality then GCs. But as far as comparing them to say, skunk2, ractive, there is a negligable difference, honestly. In fact, I bet they all come from the same sweatshops.

    I think you are correct. Only Ground Control uses a different design and allows you to request a specific spring rate.
