    thanks Dan.......so they are actually softer than standard then-as if they compress shorter when fitted surely less force to equal same compression

    by the way the spring fix......is it just rubber pipe on tails? if so I have some at work,

    thanks again......i'm such a worrier...lol

    Well I changed my standards for some crappy things I could get through my old company, then I went for the PI's then I changed everything again for a full Bilstein B12 suspension kit, I do miss the look of the PI's as mine sits a little higher now
