    Dan,

    Thanks for the feedback, that's exactly what I want. I assume you did the standard height springs with the 1" spacer? Did you have to do anything special to get the spacers to work (ie, any engine mount/transmission, etc)? I thought people said anything more than 1/2" to 3/4" would require more work/parts.

    Thanks again for the info!

    Hey, I saw you posted a little while back in a thread asking about suspension upgrades (king springs / new struts, etc). You posted a pic, and it looks great from what I can see...I want to do something simliar to my '09. I just wanted to ask if you had any complaints recently since your post (I think it was mid-late 2014 I saw your comment). I'm debating it and just wanted any additional data point to make the best decision.
    Do you feel it is really stiff (I came from a WRX, so I don't mind stiff suspensions at all)? I do carry cargo at times (mulch, rocks, etc) or my dog / gear for vacations and trips. I don't want it to be like "in the back of an empty box truck" stiff, but I also want to get rid of the boat float. I really think it's making my dog sick, and when I have more than bags of clothes (such as people in the back seat) it'll bottom out on some road to bridge transfers or even a hilly country road.
    Any feed back you can give would be appreciated.
    Thanks in advance!
    -Jim
