I plan on getting a set of these pretty soon. Question though, do these CO automatically give a 1" drop or are they stock height? Reason being, I drive mountain roads and need the clearance to drive over debri.

You can adjust them to be stock height if wanted or lower.

Thnx for the info. How would you compare it to stock? Any pros or cons? Have you had or driven a car with the other brands?

Like how BC racing and other brands coilovers that looks like BC brand are accurately built unlike the Eibachs. But seems to me like the springs are too bouncy with these sets, I would personally upgrade to stiffer springs for track use.

I love mine. Car rides and handles awesome. I paid for a lifetime alignment at my local tire shop and they will re-align for me for free if I change ride height or if I'm going to the track and want some more camber dialed in. I've played with different ride heights and I'm happy with where it is at now which is about 1.5" lower than stock. I love the stance it has.

I added a supercharger recently and with my 4.10 gears I was having traction issues because I was over powering the rear tires so much. I played with the adjustments, soften up the rear to about 10 and the fronts to about 14. The car immediately hooked better due to better weight transfer.

These coilovers are awesome for the money.

Is there a way to keep the rear dampening cable outside the vehicle so I dont have to put it in the trunk? My car is full of stereo equipment and wouldnt be the best idea.

Clearance is an issue for me. I have mine set for stock height, knowing over time it will settle about .5 inch.
