Every review should be done something like this. Now that this thread is bumped how is the ride now? and do you have any more pics? 1st pic looks to be on a incline.

Where could I find a set of Toyota Supra shocks? This spring shock combo looks great but I'm not sure which shocks to purchase. Thank you.

So I am correct on assuming that the SC300 and Supra shocks are the same?(dimension wise) I know the damping rates may vary........

you should pair the supra springs with supra shocks. springs are similar dimension wise but different enough that you cannot use the supra spring on the SC shocks. If you try it will only work for the rear (or was it front) but not both there is a different in the mounts. Its best to just get supra shocks when using supra springs and SC shocks when using SC springs.

I have the SC nf210's and the ride is great but the drop could be a little lower. these look like a better solution if you are getting shocks anyways then you can get supra ones and use these.

Ok first off great review. I rarely have to start a thread because there is ALWAYS one out there dealing with exactly my question/dilemma/comment/concern you just have to use that search button...(hint hint) then maybe I would stop seeing new ppl like myself catching grief all the time for being lazy...anyway I have a chance to buy a pair of said springs for 125 off Craigslist my concern is that the guy/girl says they cut 1 coil off the front springs to make them .5 lower. I just want to check on this b4 I buy them if it will be ok. Here is pic of said Ad...
