Re: 4KSQ: Aftermarket Springs

Not that I know of, But the H & R spring kit I have on my car only droped 
it aprox. 3/4 inch. I love the H & R (G.P.R. 1-800-321-5432 $220 + tax, ship)
I have a friend who just had the Eibach Kit put in his 84 4kq and I like 
the H & R better. We are both using Boge Turbo Gas struts, His are new 
and mine are 1.5 years old. The H & R kit is much stiffer (evean tho my 
struts are older). The Eibbach kit is about midline between the stock and 
the H & R in stifness. If you drive agressively and on curvy roads I 
would suggest the H & R. If you want a more "touring" feal then I wold go 
with the Eibach. (avalible from wolfsport 1-800-342-8669 $250)
I have much experance with both vendor and they are both great. If you 
call wolfsport ask for Eddie.
