Gary or suspension wizards.....

Im purchasing the HR sport springs and had a question. I see a lot of people who remove the spring pads for a slight extra drop. I wanted to know the negative effects (if any) of doing this, and also how much of a difference it would really make. Would this wear the shocks out sooner too?? Thank you very much!

It makes it about 1/2 inch lower on the rear. Sometimes on large dips you'll hear a slight clunk. Not sure about the front though...

I'll default to the other forum members on this one. We don't have much experience with this...
