Default Ground Control lowering springs....NOT coilovers??

Does anyone know if Ground Control made a run of lowering springs for the S197's??? I looked at my recently purchased car and they are blue, much lower than stock, and the rear ones I can make out Ground Control 11917. I can't find any information on these particular springs and want to know what the drop is supposed to be. Any info much appreciated.

Well, most "coilover" kits for the s197 consist of the front coilover struts and springs, and the rear includes the shocks, springs, and height adjusters, keeping the stock configuration. That could be what you're looking at. What are the front springs/struts and are the rear springs mounted on height adjusters?

Nope these are just plain old lowering springs. Shocks seperate in the back and struts in the front with the springs.

Hmm thats odd, and I am pretty sure the springs for the ground control coil overs are red!

Sorry guys, I am a dumbass. Read the spring wrong. They are Ground Force springs NOT Ground Control. I guess I had them in my mind when I was looking at coilovers. Found the drop info on some ads. 1.3" up front and 1.4" in the back.
