Re: Threw the ground controls on!

How much shorter? The fact that I can see the bump stop and piston has me worried. ALOT.

Ground Control's only use one spring perch, it has an internal allen head to lock it into place.

What? Yes they are coilovers, a coilover is whenever a spring is mounted with a dampening device inside it as an assembly. I think you mean adjustable coilovers.

doesnt anybody else see any difference there?

in my book height adjusted springs arent coilovers.
springs + matched shocks = coilovers

I just dont trust in ANY just height adjustable spring-set-thingys

IMO springs should be always matched to the shocks and no-one can quarantee that without using full coilovers where theyre designed to work together
