Ive lowered my car with prokits and koni yellows but now I regret lowering because of all the bumps on road, jackin up mah rs racing kit. So I was wondering if I can reinstall my stock springs and keep the konis in. How would this affect the ride quality? also would it make the ride back to orignial height? thanks in advance.

yes you can use stock springs with koni shocks! and if you want stock ride height..just make sure you dont put it on the lowest spring perch. But i dont know why you're having problem with it being too low. I know a few people with prokits and a body kit with little problems.

As long as you dont have an SH, there's no problem with using the stock springs with Koni's. If you use the upper perch (only 2 on the front) on the front shock and the middle perch (out of 3) on the rears, you'll be at stock height.

Ride quality will depend on how you set the Koni's. I found that full soft was a little firmer than stock. Full stiff was painful on bumpy roads.

Chiuey: What Perch settings are the springs at on the shock body? When mine first went on they were on the lowest setting and I scraped everywhere too - since then I raised it up to the top so it's just the 1.3" drop from the Eibach springs and haven't had a problem.

Come on man! Don;t do it! Lowered cars look great and handle sweeeeeet!
Is it any lower than mine? That is a standard strut with the Pro-kits, nothing else, and I have NEVER scraped the car, even on our awful British roads!
If it's any lower, OK, but try and get something looking like this ride height!
