Also, a couple quick questions which I have yet to see asked...

1) Has anyone had issues running into the bump stops with lowering springs?
2) Has anyone ever had issues with the drive shaft having less movement between the output shaft of the transmission and input shaft of the differential?

Question 1. Depending on how low you go. Will determine when you will hit the bump stops and how often. Everyone has hit the bump stops at one time or another. You just don't know it.

Question 2. Lowering the car has nothing the do with the driveshaft between the tranny and diff. Both are fixed in position. The driveshaft doesn't move. It's fixed at the diff. You should be concern about the halfshafts between the diff and knuckle. The diff stays in place the the knuckle moves up and down in an arc.
