This might seem really stupid but i just bought the Eibach Sportline spring and the drop says its 1.4 now i want to buy shocks and for an example the tockico says it only drops an inch. Will i loose life from my shock by riding on a spring that can lower more or should i go with another shock >?? what is suggested

That's a good question, I would say .4 of an inch will not make that much of a difference to shorten the life of the shock.

Ya i Was Thinking bout Tokico Illuminas but i dont want to have to be adjusting every so often. And im sure after a while you would have to re-adj those .... by the way is the sportline a good spring diddnt get reviews before i bought but im finding out that ppl say they sagg. and there kinda of stiff ride

I concur.. I've ran on KYB GR2's(not rated for any drop) in my Conquest for tens of thousands of miles, while dropped 3-3.25" or so..

I have KYB GR2's and they do advertise that they can be used on modified suspensions. But my drop is only on Prokits not Sportlines, but we are only talking half an inch.
