Re: Shorter rear shocks for lowering springs?
Just to follow up - I received my "low profile" KYB shocks from OPGI. Same length as what came off the car, same length as the KYB's I picked up at Advance.
I also installed my 3" drop springs from CPP: More like 5" drop springs which was exactly what I calculated when I received the springs and had an idea they were too short. Pinned the jack body between the gas tank and the floor.
The tech guy at CPP was helpful though - I had him pull a set of 2" drop springs, and make some measurements so I could calculate the drop I would get with them - That math worked out to be about a 4" drop.
They'll both be sent back. The moral of my story is - Spend the extra money to order from a shop that actually knows what they sell. If there are no specs listed for specific parts, then be leary as to what you will be receiving.
