    Actually Im ganna be orderiing my Coilovers tomarrow. Cant wait!:D It's a great choice and I reccomend it. Im basically am upgrading from a spacer lift and I need new shocks anyways... But If you plan going over 2.5" then I would get a diff drop kit. Im also getting Total Chaos UCA's bc of allignment issues when going with a 3" lift, its not recomended, but I like things with in specs.
