How would you say these compare to stock FE4 shocks/springs? I'm sure they're light-years ahead of the FE3 in terms of damping rates, but my FE4 feels much more controlled than the FE3. I imagine these are even better yet, but roughly how much?
How much stiffer is the ride with the chosen springs?

I'm exploring many options right now for mild lowering and this is one of them. I want to do it right, but track use will be very rare for this car so I don't want to give up too much in ride quality (mainly for my wife, honestly).
Spring rates at current time are still proprietary and will not be released just yet.

The car is stiffer than stock, think ZL1 in sport mode.

Working on having a timeline on those right now.

I guess I need to get a ride in a ZL1 in sport mode then. (Anyone?)

For things as basic as spring rates, though, I really prefer to know what specs my parts have, proprietary or not. I'm trying to decide if that would be a deal breaker for me. I guess I can understand where you're coming from from a business perspective, it's just not my thing to have useful specs hidden from me.
I haven't written them off completely, however. From everything I know and have heard about you guys related to the suspension department, it's top quality stuff.

I'll try to remember to PM you with some questions tomorrow, I'm late for bed already.

Anthony, whats the advantage with the adjustable shock valving over just having adjustable ride height?

Many people want a better way of adjusting the ride height without using new springs.

As for the adjustments, this allows you to control the ride (ie: soft or stiff / street or track).

So it boils down to why you are buying them.

Generally speaking....for what we are doing (street, autoX, and road racing) most will have little use for a shock adjustment change.

When we work on adjustments on the shocks on the race cars, this is a small adjustment to bring the car around, depending on the track but it is one of the very last things done to the car. Bigger changes like springs, sway bars, setup....that is what makes the big changes to the cars track to track.

Now if we were building shocks for a late model dirt car, or a Sprint cars because of their radical changes in track surface they need a huge jump in soft to hard settings on the shock just due to available traction.

This isn't to say an adjustable shock is pointless on a street car, we will have adjustable ones on the way, but what I am saying is do not get so hung up on having 2 way, 3 way, 4 way, 13 way adjustable shocks with bleed downs....you could possibly get yourself outside of what the car needs.

Yes, you do have the ability to change the ride height with these quite a bit over stock.

There are a number of benefits over the stock, like a better more performance setup in the shock itself, a better set of springs and spring rates to better focus on the performance and handling side of things more so than just ride comfort.
