got the springs in today and had them on in a matter of hours. they ride very smooth, and the cornering couldnt be better! fit and finish on them was perfect. so far i have no complaints.

ill take some pictures when its not raining or so damn cloudy outside. plus it will give them more time to settle!

I thought I recognized the name! I remeber your thread when you painted all your trim on SC. It looks great. I've always liked it. What lip spoiler did you use on the trunk lid? Any more info/pictures on that?

thats why i figured what the hell and just bought them.

so far they have a little over 100 miles on them, and they seem to be doing fine, i do however think they have sped up the failing of my stock strut bearing oh well!

So you think the ride is the same as the stock setup? I've been wanting to lower mine (lpt suspension) and was thinking about going to aero spec. Its my wifes car (read family truckster) and I don't want it to turn out like my NG did (slammed). In fact, I am raising the NG back up with Eibach springs.

It will be a while till I'm ready to put springs on the 9-5, so you'll have to report back once you get some more time on those as to the ride quality and how they are holding up.

the ride is pretty close to stock, once you hit big bumps you can tell its lowered as the suspension is def tighter.

seriously? like silver as in the color of the body?

yup, theres sticky goo underneath but it can be removed. on my 9-3 one of the things is peeling and the silver is visible. the goo shold come off with goo be gone or similar goo removal stuff
