Default Dropzone Shocks

I recently picked up a set of slightly used Dropzone Shocks (I'm poor, but look for a worthwhile bargain), and though I haven't had them on long, it is an enormous improvement. The ride is still firm due to my spring rate, but nicely damped so I'm quite happy with them. I'll keep everyone informed as to how they hold up and such.

somewhere around 2 inches I'd guess....and they are cheap coilovers that I've had since last year. Fairly insane spring rate...but these shocks have made the drive so much more pleasant, and no, you can't adjust them.....but they are good enough for the moment. So, if you just need something to smooth out the ride till you can afford better, then these are not bad.

any complaints on the dropzone shocks? they have a lifetime warranty...so i was thinking the company must really believe in these shocks.

i might get a set, they are really cheap and life time warranted.

true, true. I'm looking at switching over to springs before too long, and hopefully will be able to save up for some agx or koni yellows. But it's tamed the ride considerably for the time being. You do get what you pay for.
