I put in the Arospeed springs and the KYB GR2 gas struts. Its such a nice ride. A couple of these are from my first car show, i got third in the import class in Georgia. A good drop? I think so. I've tried Pirreli PZERO NERO M S shoes on, and some Kumho Ecstas. Pirellis better for look and performance but if you get 20000 out of em you drive like a pussy!
