    Yeah and it will even run down the road with them on at this years shootout along with the shiny stainless braided brake lines that i won last year. I hope your motor beats the crap out of all of it and pushes them to the limit lol.

    I have the ILK2222 springs and shocks on my track car.. On the street... it rides like, you guessed it... a track car. The ride is stiffer than the stock springs. Makes sense.. they have 1.25" less travel to get the job done. So thats the trade off. For a DD, I prefer the stock ride height and springs.

    I was afraid of that the eibachs are 1.5 lower and ride just as good or better than stock.

    Theyre not bad. But there is a noticable ride difference over bigger bumps.. I personally like the ride, however there have been passenger comments.

    I sent Scott a pm but havnt been on here they were selling them at a discount and couldnt get them fo 12 weeks and those of you who dont know the Tokico springs are made by Vogtland and have a stiffer ride than the eibachs. If you buy these they will not have them He is going to get back in touch with me when they have it in stock.

    Thats typical. These aren't usually stocked. I ask whenever I purchase if they have them in stock first. Save some time because I can shop around to find someone who does have them stocked. Of course, few if any places actually have them on their shelves. I mean... would you keep shocks for a 20+ year old car sitting in your warehouse presuming you had a warehouse to begin with?

    Back order may be the only way to get new these days. I guess we can at least be thankful for that.
