Chino installed them, but reported problems. He bought the 1.8" drop but it looks a lot lower. Read this thread: http://ptenthusiasts.org/PTForums/sh...opzone+springs

I have the BTG springs.

FRONT: 25.75 inches
REAR: 26.5 inches

Measured through the center of the wheel. These springs retain the raked look with the rear slightly higher than the front. They cost around $140 at PT-Tuning.

GTSteve, that is a 1 inch drop in the rear and a 2-1/2 inch drop in the front from my stock GT.

My Goldline GLP300 which are supposed to be 1.8" drop rear, settled to about 2.0" after about 12 months. Springs will settle, or at least did in mine.

Just buy Eibach Pro Springs, 1.6" front 2" rear. They are very popular and gets rid of the rake without sacrificing ride quality. Shox has them for $219.00. Or buy Weitec's Lowering Kit 1.4" front and 2" rear for about $150 at Pro-Felge. A lot of people just buy 1.5"-2" rear springs to get rid of the rake.

Ride quality on the Goldline did NOT decrease at all!! In fact, the lower stance, and the eliminated rake created a nice ride IMHO.
