From Brian at FoxMarketing dot com (that's his email).

Fair price, got them pretty quickly, installed them and wasn't too happy.

The ride felt choppy, and I could swear it sounded like there was more road noise, but I don't see how that's possible with just a spring swap.

I've had them on a few days now and I'm getting used to it and like the ride a good bit more (handling is excellent!).

As you might be able to tell from the pics, we went up to Treasure Island today for the Dragon Boat Festival. My wife and her parents were with me, and they didn't notice any difference in the ride at all, even when I asked them.

:shrug:

I guess I was just a bit too sensitive that first day of getting the car back.

Is it just me or does the rear look lower than the front? I have seen a couple pictures of other CTs dropped with Road Magnet spring and it seems the same.

I like the wheels though.

No, you're quite correct.

Just remember, I use this vehicle for my on-site computer repair business. The entire HUGE trunk is full of computer gear (um). This is the reason for the 5% limo black tint on the rear, etc. Additionally this week the rear seats will be removed, to be replaced by an armored cargo box to hold all of the gear.

So yes, you're exactly right, in this case the rear looks lower than the front. =]
