Default Maxspeed Springs- Input needed ASAP

Anybody currently running, or had in the past, maxspeed lowering springs?

If so, do you / did you like?

Lowering quoted as 1.4 in the front and 1.5 in the rear. Is this the results you got after install? Seems this would minimize the rake and not go too low which I would be interested in.

Did I read somewhere that the Mopar springs are manufactured by Maxspeed?

Can't reply as to MaxSpeed springs as I have a Eibach's but almost all lowering kits drop the rear lower than front to get rid of most of the rake.

Make sure you read through the suspension forums for the Turbo too, alot of information about springs in general. Be sure to upgrade shocks and anything else to make it work right the first time. I am working on my 5th change. I started with Gold line and stock shocks/struts. Then switched to Sachs struts. Then changed to eibach and sachs, only to replace sachs with Tokikos, now I'm trying to figure out the next/best move from there. Do it right the first time, you may have to spend more money but you won't be like me and replacing parts all the time. Good luck.

I'm running just the rears with the stock shocks and it works fine, it levels the car out perfectly.
