you are referring to this: http://www.ground-control-store.com/.../II=541/CA=103 which does not come with top adjustable Koni, camber plates, RSM, and softer springs.

what i am selling is this: http://www.ground-control-store.com/.../II=615/CA=103 which retails for $1850.

although, i did mistitle the thread by mistake. it is the street/school coilovers.

how strong is your back?

stock sports are like 250ish, h&R sport is 300, H&R race is 400 ish, and these are 500-550. great coils but not very comfortable, track use mainly. buddy runs them on the street. but we usually take my car.....(H&R race springs)

Really? Maybe TCKline is different, but they recommend 500/550 for street setup.

Yeah, anyone that has run these knows 500/550 area to start, then you can bump up higher if that still isn't enough for you. Good shocks is the key with the right damper settings.

Like Tonester, many run 600-700 on the street and love it.

I run the same setup as the OP (450 in the front as opposed to 500) and by no means is it uncomfortable on the streets (and Toronto area streets are not the greatest).

GL with sale OP.
