Default Autoxer's! Post your suspension setup!

Just curious what suspension components everyone uses for their Autox car. Currently I have Tokico Blues, Tein Lowering Springs, and Skunk 2 LCA's. Looking to upgrade for next season but wanted to know what everyone else has and wanted recremendations.

I have a factory ITR setup...
I was recommended to go to a KONI/Ground control setup by Chris Travis... He said that the Koni/GC setup is the best alternative to a full race 3000+$ setup like the motons.

If car is strictly AutoX or if you're willing to have a jarring ride, then go with linear springs (not progressive)
I'm not upgrading for the time being, so I don't recall the spring rates he suggested other than the fact that they were very high...

Secrets, secrets, are no fun...

50-60 runs is probably good for a couple years of use for me, awesome.

Very nice setup but how do you find it on the track? I would imagine it would be way too stiff.
