That's for the coils. I'm looking for info on their lowering springs. I've checked out V-MAXX's FB page and seen a few pictures but nobody has really said anything about them from what I've seen.

Thanks a lot. I'm loving it so far, and I just talked to Mike at RDC about the springs and I've gone ahead and decided to make the purchase and my order is confirmed!

You might want to talk to some of the V-Maxx spring owners. A few are already looking to replace them due to the negative rake.

Edit: Nevermind, I see you already bought them.

Okay, my thoughts about vmaxx springs. The front is what is bugging me. The back tucking but the front, not even close, it almost looks stock. I might be cutting them soon. But the ride never changed. I can assure you that.

It's all good guys. I'm not looking for an overly drastic drop. I just want a nice subtle drop to add a slightly more aggressive stance. It's still my dd and I am currently just working on bits and pieces here and there. Thanks for all the input and I'll update as I get them in and then getting them on.

What we were saying is that the V-Maxx springs don't really lower the front, but drop the rear considerably. Basically, take your car and have someone sit in the trunk. The rear-end squat that you see is going to be roughly what you end up with. Had I seen that you were looking at these I would have recommended the Eibach Pro Kit (or even sold you mine). With them you get an even .8" drop all the way around.

I'm definitely curious to your thoughts and pictures after install.
