Which brings up my situation.  Im installing the 2b coilover setup and i 
have to decide what height i want to run.  I think i have decided to just 
run stock ride height as lowering it has so many negative effects and so 
few positive ones.  with 325lb springs up front and 275 lb ones in the 
rear, my car wont be rolling much anyway, so i think that in my 
situation, stock is the best compromise.  What do you guys think?
