I bought helpers when I initially put a GC/Koni on my car. In the end I didn't bother using them. I ran the car competitively in STX for several seasons and never had the lack of helpers cause a problem.

Besides, when you consider the stack height of the helpers + the adapters is about 0.5", that's an additional 0.5" of compression stroke you're losing when you drop the lower perch down to maintain your current ride height.
If you read the "other" thread about droop then you'll see why this guy is concerned.....people on the other thread are claiming loose spring = death
