PSS9 + H&R Spring
I'm considering having PSS9 to my ride. But problem is that PSS9 is more meant to be a street coils which means it won't give an ideal slam. I'm currently using 19" with H&R Race and Mtech2 shocks. It's time for shocks change and I've actually bought a set of B8.

Since I have a superb slammed H&R race spring, I'm thinking to use back the spring with PSS9 shocks (which is monotube B16 if not mistaken). Anyone tried this before? Or anyone can give any comments? Some might said better to get KW3, H&R coils, etc. But just take it as I can get a good deal on this set of PSS9. So other coils options is invalid.

How much height different of using PSS9 (with its spring) compare to B8 + H&R?

And I did consider too that supposedly, PSS9 spring and shocks are designed and meant for each other. But I just can't sacrifice the slammed look.

Please advice.

That sounds to be about the worst plan possible. Might as well just forgo springs on your coils...

Seriously though, start with the PSS9s slammed, and if you need more, try your springs. I see many spring perch incompatibilities in your future.

PSS9 are not known for epic slam. Try a different coil like KW V2 if you wanna dump.

You will have to excuse me but what does SLAM & Dump refer to ?
