I'm currently using the AE springs but having problems with ride height... I think I may switch to the Yok GT4 springs myself... The Regular Yok and RS aren't stiff enough for carpet...

I got em mainly for the GT4, but they will definately be nice to have for the SD as well.

Randman - here are the GT-4 spring rates.

YS-1560 Dark Green 16.21
YS-1660 Red 18.29
YS-1655 Yellow 22.54
YS-1650 Green 24.87
YS-1760 Silver 25.89
YS-1755 Grey 26.38
YS-1750 Brown 32.08


I have been using brown in the front and grey in the rear for carpet.

Glad you finnally decided that the Yok is the car for you, I came to the same conclusion a couple of months ago.

Later, Lee
