I like it! Any issues with hitting the bumpstops on normal driving?

Nice, I will have to keep them in mind, I'm getting sick of my beat stockers, lol, what do do for the front of your cars, I see they all have a similar stance.

Cool thanks, the wagon has the look, something sits just right with it, but since I have to be budget minded a cut moog may be the way to go.

How do the cut MOOGS ride? I've got cut stockers on the front of mine right now and it floats around and has a ton of body roll, hence the reason for wanting to switch to diff springs. I would like a tiny bit more rake than yours has now so I guess I'd have to go a coil and a 1/4?

Are you using regular kybs on the car or the shortened ones?

Do you think the kyb's will be ok if I do an extra 1/4 coil off the moogs in the front on mine?
