I am split whether I should get them or Whitelines Controls (~1' drop).
Other i-club regulars:
I see the following potential pro et contra:
Whitelines' NASCAR look
but presumably less roll than Dobs due to lowered height...
ride quality on bumpy roads presumablybetter with stock height dobinsons..
The height is just that, stock height from the factory. Rear springs had lost some pep and were lower with the stiffer rear sway bar, so actually brought that up a bit to where it should be. Car is very even front to back.
Cornering has no ill effects due to the stock height, car is very stable and flat when cornering. Will corner as well as the tires allow, much less body roll than my '01. This car ('97) also has an 18mm rear bar.
On the wagon at least, I like the extra clearance when hauling around a lot of groceries.
