Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Do I need to add subframe spacers?
A: As the lift is minimal, you will be within spec of the OEM geometry, and spacers will have an opposite effect when lowering ride height. We would recommend rear lateral links (control arms) to dial in rear camber.
Q: Should I get comfort or sport springs?
A: This depends on what you're after, for a more touring feel, opt for our comfort series. If you want to increase handling, our sport spring is about 15% higher rate than the stock springs.
Q: Will the GS Lite work with my [brand] strut spacers?
A: We don't recommend using a spacer on this suspension.
Q: Can I get different spring rates as I carry a lot of gear and tow?
A: Absolutely! Just tell us what rate you'd like in the order notes
Q: Can the shocks be rebuilt or do I have to buy replacements?
A: These are completely rebuildable, by us or anyone with nitrogen
Q: What's the difference between these and the GR Lite?
A: The GR Lite uses a longer travel shock, which when lowering with greatly reduce compression travel, or could give too much travel when lowered, causing your tire to contact the fender or inner fender area. The GS uses the same travel specs as the OEM suspension to optimize a +/- 1.5" ride height change in either direction up or down.
