I have no question on the legality of them. I read some of the previous posts on here about them, but I would really like to hear more about the technical reasons for wanting them. First off I can see that you are going to lower your center of gravity, with out changing your suspention geometry too much. However, doesn't the stock metric geometry improve somewhat as the ride height is lowered, say with shorter spring? Just wondering if it is really something worth investing in, or if my money would be better spent on other things.
Thanks

Best $150 I have spent in a while.Lowers ride height and adds spring travel.I had to much trouble getting the spring travel and the ride heights I needed for proper handling plus the lower A arm was bottoming out.Plus they are beefier all over.It really help me with corner entry and being able to get through the corner better. jmho

Anything that would improve your cars corner speed is worth investing in.A question to consider do the drop spindles correct any or all of the Bump-steer?
