Default Dropzone 2 " lowering springs

Well I got my lowerring springs installed today! All I have to say is ..... WOW! I bought a set of Dropzone 2" springs off Ebay for about 90 bucks with shipping. Having never experinced Eibachs or any others I can't compare to them but the ride with the Dropzone springs is great. Just slightly stiffer than stock is all. And the looks...AWESOME!!! The wife even says the ride is fine. And to most of you who are married know how important that is!lol. I'll post pics as soon as I can get to it.

Congrats to you! I had the other experience. I bought Goldline 2" drop springs, the ride extremely aggressive. I loved the performance part but the bone jarring ride (over bumps)was too much to handle. I switched to Eibach and all is good again...even with my wife.[?]

Good Luck.

R3dWhitNCrz, welcome to the forum. No what you mean about the ride, I have 2" drop Progress springs all the way around, but I like them even though the ride is a little rough at times.

I was running Progress Springs, then switched to Goldline Slammer.. Both were good springs but wanted to turn heads at shows or just for parking lot stance so I went with air ride..Nothing beats adjustabilty
