I don't think they offer softer springs but swift makes great upgraded spring that make this a much better combo. Even adding $300 springs still makes them a good deal.

Great write up, I am going to be swapping out my suspension over the weekend, just curious if you know the torque setting for the bolt that connects the endlink to the arm in the rear. Also what are you torquing the bolts at the bottom of the struts down to. Thanks in advance glad I found this thread.

Tophat to Chassis (rear) is - 23lbs x2

Shock (front) to knuckle is - 129lbs
Tophat to Chassis (front) is - 15lbs x3
ABS and Brake line (front) is 24lbs

Good luck!

Awesome thanks for that, are you torquing the camber bolt down to 129 as well? Thanks for the fast response, I feel a lot better about doing this now, especially as I probably would have gone over 15 pounds on the front without knowing. Thanks again.
