i'm looking for springs that give a dead even drop. Out of all the pics I have seen, Cobb does the job best.

I'm trying to decide between the Cobb and the RSRs.. the Cobb gives a better drop but I think the spring rates are too high for stock shocks.. I've also heard some have had problems with the spring sitting on the perch correctly..

yeah that's what I heard also, lately I have been looking at the Tokico Dspec shock & spring combo. The pics I have seen for them also gives a nice even drop and people say the ride is nice and you can adjust the stiffness easily.

^^Aren't the Bilstein Pss10s coilovers? If those are the coilovers, I didn't even know they went that low.

The Box says pss9/10 so i think i have 10 front and 9 rear or maybe just 9 all around. Im not positive, but it does go pretty low so far. And i do have room to go lower still, but if i do i wont be able to do certain things, like go home.

I always thought the pss9's only had 9 click adjusting #'s for the damper settings, but mine have 10...so beats me.

The part # is F4-GM5-E614-H0. Every time i look it up comes up as pss10.

lvz053: We'll with 19inch wheels im not to sure how much you will have to cut to get an even drop. I had more to cut of the mount if i wanted to so the rear could possibly go lower. As far as the ride you won't notice any difference it feels pretty much stock. My wheel setup is more aggressive than yours and i dont rub so...no you won't have a rubbing issue. like you said it is mandatory to have a rear camber kit though.

Tanabe NF claims 1.25 all the way around, I have them on my Z and after they settled the front looks very nice but the rear needs to be lowered a bit more..am thinking of doing the rear mod that a lot of folks on here are talking about.

GF210's with stock shocks...First picture is before 25mm spacers and spc rear camber arm and toe bolt. I did not check the alignment before installing camber kit. Take it for what its worth but definatly looked like way more negative camber before the kit.
