I did a quick search and didn't turn up much. Where did you get the springs from and is there any details about the springs such as how much they are supposed to lower the car?

i'm running Suspension Techniques on my cab. i think they have 2 kinds, like a street and a sport or something like that. i have the low ones and the ride is VERY harsh! i was a dumbass and used OE struts with them... the struts lasted about 100 miles before they failed. :)

i have boge turbogas now, they seem to be holding up good. i think they were $50 or $60 a piece for the front, cheaper for the rear.
i did put new strut mounts (strut bearings) in when i did the OE struts and they are still fine.
Suspension Techniques springs are in no way top of the line, but they were a good price. someday i'll have coilovers.

thanks man.
no, when i first got the springs i went out and bought struts and strut mounts from autozone, put it all on and blew out the autozone struts, the strut mounts were still fine. then i got smart and got the boge turbogas struts put them on and it's been good.
the rims are konig traffiks 16".
