      They work good at a decent height they ride but they definitely hold up being maxed out. Not sure if you have wheels but I had a problem with clearance because of the locking collars and inner rim lip, but besides that they ride good, don't really need them if your wheels aren't wide, I would only get them if you are looking for maximum low.

      Right on. I just ordered the springs today, can't wait to get them. I'm rolling on 17x7 wheels and I am rubbing on the springs. I just got my 1 1/4" spacers that are gonna give me a lot of clearance. Where did you get the side skirt, and what brand is it?

      My tire rub my springs too������ the side skirts are custom fitted to the car, comes off a 07 charger. I shaved them and pushed them out to look low and to cover up the ugly pinch welds I've destroyed they get dragged everywhere lolName:  IMG_1765.jpg

      Been messing with the preload setting in the rear as far as what height you first set it. I've found 326 springs in the rear with half preload makes the car handle amazing and smooth. Broken roads are as bad and neither are highway but bridge transitions are more cushioned. Can't wait to mk1Name:  IMG_1924.jpg

      Finally got my 326 springs and 1 1/4" spacers. Spacers helped with much needed clearance and also the handling improved. Also restored the headlights with great results.

      set rear at 10 threads from top of the threads. So the collar set should have 10 threads between it and where it starts. No helper in the rear, front you could put anywhere honestly. That's the most comfortable setting I've found. Glad to see you got the other color than me lol

      Forgot you had different spring rates so set the spring at half to break it in
