    just a warning to you.. those skunk2 shocks need something really stiff like a skunk2 coilover ... prepare to be hitting bumpstops

    why no coilovers? its not like you have to dump it out.. you can choose the ride stance you want

    ive just always heard they are really hard to get setup... like getting the ride height equal all the way around...
    so the skunk2 springs wouldnt be worth it???

    :shrug:

    they cost about $100 less than the skunk2 adjustables

    they have a static drop of 2.5" front / 2.25" rear

    i know the coilovers are very stiff and without a lot of dampening give a rough bouncy ride (im assuming the skunk2 shocks you have would be fine for either)

    2.5" is a pretty significant drop in my opinion.... but i tend to prefer a higher stance for my cars... so you may like the lower ride height

    Wow, if you use those on the skunk2 shocks they'll be dead in a week. $35 shocks are more than likely going to ride like total ass. I'd pick up the skunk2 springs.
