Makes no sense to me either, at this point.  Scott M. pointed out a
weblink to a supplier of Intrax springs
as well, which further supports the urS-car and V8 sameness.  Also
supports the UFO/Non-UFO interchangeability as far as the V8 goes, but
they show a different application for the 200 20v as well.   As far as
these go, I do like the progressive construction, but they don't seem to
help the handling beyond the physics of actual lowering.

IMHO, these cars do look much better dropped down a tad, moreso on cars
with bigger wheels and less tire sidewall, which tends to make the
wheel/fender gap more obvious.
