no, i decided against them. I am only going for a 2" drop AT MOST so i thought i wouldn't benefit from them.

im also sticking with stock Bumpstops (cutting em in half).

ANNDDD by the way. THmotorsports was who i ordered the koni yellows from . absolute pleasure to deal with. They even matched an ebay price!!!

i would spend the $ and get new bumpstops and two the bumpstops are just a lil bigger than they give you the clearance for by maybe a mm or 2 so you can take a drill and a drill bit and widen it just enough to clear it to savve yourself time

OP you are going to like the new suspension. When i upgraded to koni/gc it was a night and day difference from my old setup (orange konis,H&R Sport).

Z, did you use your stock bump stops on your Yellow/GC setup? or the extended top hats?

thanks!

that is exactly what i was saying.. i had reds (instead of orange like Wyatt had) and HR springs, and went to the setup being talked about...

as for top hats, i used the stock ones, but i am not all that low anymore... that shit gets old (tire wear, poor day to day drivability)

yeah, i plan on experimenting with my ride height a bit. i expect the ground controls to be quite easy to adjust (going off reviews and such). ill prob only go down 1.5 inches ( i live in the mountains of north georgia, so there are some steep driveways and stuff)

For the ~$900 range, its hard to beat the Koni/GC setup. Hell, I would say its a better option than the $500 Taiwanese stuff. Its quality products from both companies and flexible to fit your driving style or needs. The Koni Yellos can also be rebuilt and have excellent warranty. You can probably tell I love mine...
