    Your front springs need to either be replaced or cranked up! Those CV angles are almost perfect! lol

    Are there enough threads left to crank the coils up a bit more? To me it looks like there's not. If thats the case you need new springs.

    Yep, your springs are shot. Not sure If you want to just get spring, But I would get whole new strut assembly.

    depends on what your budget is. :)
    I personally wouldnt go ProComp again. But maybe upgrade to something else.

    Not sure about that.. havent heard anyone doing it with the ProComps. Im sure someone who knows if you can, just swap out the springs will chime in.... Have you looked at SAW's or Toytecs, or Icon's. Even OME makes somes some good stuff.
