are you getting shocks to go with them? if you are after cheap good shocks there is a company that rebuilds standard shocks to whatever specs you want, for sweet bugger all $$$.
they can shorten them, make them stiffer or softer, and even lower the font of the car by changing the position of the spring seat. they have a 2 year 40,000k warranty
i have a set in my car, cost less than $200 for all four (not including fitting, did it myself and will help you if you want) and they are great. only problems are the rear is not q-u-i-t-e stiff enough, i like a stiffish ride and have a big stereo in the boot, so sometimes i have that feeling that says " a little stiffer shocks in the back would be good" and also the fronts lack a little travel on bumps.
i have superlow king springs and the front shocks bottom out on big bumps, they didnt when i had standard shocks and lowered springs in...i did ask him to reset the ride height a few mm lower at the front to make the car sit level cause of the stereo, it would prolly be better if i had only 1" lower springs instead of 2...
are you going on the cruise on sunday? i could take you for a drive and you could see if you like them, i would sell the set of shocks for say $170 (i could fit them for a little extra if you want as well, im a mechanic) and i would get a new stiffer set.
mine have only been in use for probably 2 months at the most, so they are still good, and in warranty.
the name of the place if you are interested is caled TSR (The Shock Absorber Reconditioners) and they rebuild all the shocks for the EAs and VNs in that raceing category i forget what its called.
