Yeah, they are the Tanabe Sustec Super-H springs. I just ordered some from Options Auto Salon. Price was about $149+s/h

GC's are rated to drop between 0.5" and 3.0".

So even at the highest, its still a tad lower than stock.

I think they drop even lower than that...3.5". Not that I'll ever slam mine THAT much

You just have to make sure you keep them clean when you live or drive in the snow. Dirty areas can be a problem too.

If they get dirty, they are hard to adjust; nearly impossible by yourself. Dirt and salt get stuck in the threads, and the collar can get stuck.

As long as they are kept clean, they should be fine.

If you want to slam it, why not just take out the springs and ride on the bump stops?????

You should probably pick a new hobby, I have a feeling you will be getting ripped off by prospective retailers. Mainly because of your lack of knowledge in the huge aftermarket industry.

Don't take that statement offensively...it's just that you were looking at Ground Control's and their products are only coil-over systems and you had no idea what adjustments can be made with a coil-over setup.
