...and just to follow that up, we ran consistent mid 1.50's 60 ft/times with our 1" lowering springs before we switched over to coil-overs. The springs had very little effect on our 60 ft/times. Unless you are a hardcore drag racer looking for that last 1/100th in the quarter you will be fine drag racing with our 1" springs.

Thanks, I was afraid it would make it harder to hook up.

You shouldn't have any problem using our lowering springs for drag racing.

I just bought your whole stage 3 suspension package, got my 22" wheels coming too i can't wait!! my car is going to rock.

I want to order the rear lower control arms , toe rods, and trailing arms but i had a few question about which ones i should buy with adjustability. Its just going to be a street car that i take to the drags once in a blue moon. Do i really need adjustable lower control arms? i was going to get the trailing arms and toe rods with adjustablity.

Technically they will fit on a convertible. However the weights between a Coupe & a Convertible are quite different. Since the Springs were designed around a Coupe and we never buy convertibles, we don't know what the Exact Drop Amount will be.

I bought the entire package for my 2012 V6 RS for track duty. w/the 1"spings and 3-way adj sways. I had a race driver test it at grandsport speedway in Hitchcock tex and he couldn't upset it, it was neutral on the trickiest chicanes. I took all that off except the springs when I traded it for my 2016. when I totaled the 16 due to the Harvey storm I bought another 12 with the same susp geometry as my 1st 2012. and installed everything. now waiting to get the springs (and Koni's, and brakes), only this time I have 17' 1LE rims I purchased from Phastek. so it's almost ready. The old 12 is in the pic below this post.
