    You'll need aftermarket UCA's for the extended travel.

    I had a very similar dilemma with the Icons I just bought. I went with the extended length because, for this reason and others, I'd rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

    Cool...what does your front height measure if you done mind me asking? I just bought the same coilovers through the group buy from DSM and I'm just trying to get an idea of what baseline height they add.
