Is there any particular reason why people use Asso springs with their SD, besides of the fact that you have a larger variety of spring rates to choose from?

Thanks

You can also get the AE shock cups and use a ball end on the shock shaft and screw the ball into the arm, or get the RS spring cups. I'm using the AE springs when running carpet because they come in heavier rates. If you want to use the RS springs on the CGM you just need the RS spring cups since the springs are longer

They are expensive, but worth it IMO. They are hardened steel, and are very hard to break. They are also smoother than the stock universals.

I've slightly bent my hardened universal before but have never seen anyone actually break them. I've been able to straighten them out with no problems though. They're worth the $40

just wondering,
i have some some of the assoc springs,and the labels aren't the same as your listing.You are consistently off by 0.3-0.5lbf's ..i was wondering if it's really consistent that it can be used for comparison??

I am fairly sure these are the ones that Steve from Speedtech posted a while back. I believe they were all measured with the same method but i am not sure.

The hardened universals replace the dogbone and axle. You can save money by just replacing the dogbone, but after personally trying all of the dogbone alternatives, I'd say your better off with stock.
