Standard, but u probably could use shorty springs though the shock bodies r threaded all the way down to the bottom of the shock body except for about a coupe mm

Hey guys. I have completed the build and it went very smooth. I had no issues with fitment. only thing i wish they would have done is run a longer front and rear sway bar and have the sway bar go through a coller.. Otherwise, its very nice. ill have it running on the carpet by the weekend.

Does anybody know what other belts fit on this car?? The stock ones are pretty stiff. Almost like a plastic material.

Agreed.. They loosen up a little after some use. Now I really like them as they have had months of use with no issue.
