Okay, so I will admit it... I am too lazy to search and read through too much bullish... haa haa

Can any of you Gen 3 owners tell me what is the lowest spring available for our application? (And no I am not asking what you think is better... I just want to know what the lowest is).

Thank you guys.

remove the springs and just sit on the bumpstops.

or cut the stops and sit on the chassis.

the lowes tpossible spring application will be the same.

custom wound springs dont cost anymore then a set of eibachs.

^^^oem...I figure they only have 7-8k max on them and even thought it is my daily driver i've only put on about 12k in over 3 yrs (not a whole lot) so I figure i'll be good for a while before they blow.

+ hasn't/didn't Alan use stock struts for like over 30k without a problem?

^ they'll hold up just fine at least for a couple of years if you don't drive too much or too harsh

I was on stock 11 yr old struts for about a year and a half before I got my kybs- but it wasn't because my shocks were blown, but I was just insecure with high speed cornering with a lower/soft rebound

Well... I would feel insecure about taking turns at either 40 or 60... thats pretty fast on stock struts. I wouldn't take turns at those speeds unless I had aftermarket struts. I've taken a left turn once at 65, and it didn't feel too nice on the stock struts. And I was pretty lucky that it was a wide street that I was turning onto and late at night, so I had plenty of room to make the turn wider.

I'd say ahything over 60, and on the highway ramps, maybe 80-100, then you get that floaty feeling everytime you hit a bump and I wouldn't be surprised if a wheel does get a bit of air
