You have to hold the traction control button for like 10 seconds to shut it completely off. Otherwise you are just turning it off partially and it will only allow some wheel spin.

Just buy the shocks if you want to do it. ZHP springs are the same as the sport package springs so no benefit to swapping those. Koni FSD would probably be a better value if you're buying new.
