caps lock > j0o...

Skunk2 Coilovers are pretty decent, a lot of people use those or Ground controll's paired with koni's or KYB's. I dunno about their "lowering springs" though, I've never met anyone who uses them.

skunk2 coilovers are ok, but ground controls with koni yellows or kyb agx are better.

i put skunk2 springs on my 03 si, and they were pretty decent. they arent coilovers, but if you just want to lower your car, the skunk2's are great. dont think you can go auto-crossing just because you have a lower car though.
the skunk2 springs kicked the crap out of the gold lines previously installed on the same car.

I like my coil overs, Skunk2. There matched up with Tokico Illumina's so its a good match i think. Either way no complants here.

yea .... skunk2's stuff is great... affordable and clean stuff at the same time... i certainly will be investing in a set of coilovers and ther shifter.. and possibly there exhaust system.. if i can't get ahold of a Ex-mag RSR... isn't skunk2's megaphone made by RSR?

Prob. could've Searched....

If you're concerned with height, why not just get the Skunk2 adjustable kit? I have that paired with kyb agxs and the adjustability is great. But if you go with just springs, I'd say Skunk2 isn't the most popular way to go but you shouldn't be disappointed.

off the shelf wise, skunk2 are better than ground control, but if you were to get ground control with stiffer custom rates then that would be a better than skunk2

Skunk2 makes good products, and thier coilovers are decent. I got ground controls with some kyb's and now I regret it somtimes when im driving. I shoulda got skunk2 coils, cuz ground controls are known to be a lil bouncey......

That's funny, I've heard many a time that the Skunk2's are too bouncy and Eibach/GC was the way to go with kyb's. But I have em and like em, guess it's just about preference. They get the job done pretty well.
