Would these work on my SH?

So I've got a 1997 SH that is aching to be closer to the ground and I've been exploring some options. What im looking for is a daily-driver with a mean stance and increased handling that isn't gonna break the bank nor ride like a covered wagon.

I honestly have not even taken a wheel off nor looked at my suspension so i guess my main concern would be is this compatible with both base and SH models? I've been told through the grapevine that bases have the standard macpherson strut as opposed to the double wishbone on the SH. Is there truth to this and are the strut/spring assemblies interchangeable?

I believe they fit. I've heard of numerous SHers runing tockico blues

Re: Would these work on my SH?

I want to say they are the same as base, not 100% sure. The company just haven't tried them on a SH.

Re: Would these work on my SH?

^ahhh ... leather seats, I'll trade you my house for them

they look like a good deal, I just wouldnt rock them though. Just cause there non adjustable shocks and non adjustable springs and I'm that type of guy that will have my lude as a daily driver on weekdays and track times on weekends. Ohh enough of my dreams.
