My main concern was getting by without shocks and struts for now. If its not an issue than springs might be next on the mod list.

Lmao @ Nuke. Even after he said to reduce the wheel gap hahaha

Ahhhh that was funny. Yea, springs are very cheap and with handle the appearance part of it but ride quality will be affected. Handling will be better than stock.

I have FRPP Springs and Shocks/Struts. Handles like a beast but I feel every pothole painfully (more mental pain for my car, because it really isn't painful lol. Just hard on the ears when you hear it slam)
