I have the FRPP 1.5" springs on my 01 SE paired with the OEM shocks. Car is a bit stiff but I actually like it that way, I also havent had much trouble with wheel hop either. The only negative so far is by lowering the vehicle, obtaining a good toe setting is impossible, rear of the car likes to pull in opposite directions & eats tires like a fatkid eats a cupcake. I am about to add Toe & Camber arms from Massive to correct this problem, and allow the car to be fun to drive again.

Yeah when you lower you need alignment and castor/camber bolts/plates. 1.5" isn't extreme but its enough to need a lot of things if u want to keep it right for the long term

Yeah, I knew the problems that it would create, but didnt have the money to fix all the problems at once. Its getting there though, little by little.
