Bob, thank you for the 'swift' reply (get it? LOL).
It sounds like you and I are kindred spirits - I'm not looking to slam my car, but I think I would like to go 1/2 - 1 inch lower, and it doesn't seem the Ohlins springs are going to get me there.
I plan to discuss it with Harold in the next couple of days, and make a decision. I wonder if the shorter springs will require the Ohlins to be revalved...another question for Harold. Your point about incurring the additional labor cost is very good, definitely something to avoid. I guess I might also be looking at end links for the front sway, so there's another added cost. Better to do it right once than to keep coming back to it.
Thanks again for your feedback, it's extremely valuable!
