    Just want to make sure I'm not missing something because I'm looking at purchasing these and don't think there is anything additional required (other than the recommended shorter dog bones).
    Info from Bio on lowering:

    a) those are overpriced. get them off a pontiac montana minivan from a junkyard, that's what those are. $5.

    b) 1" shorter is too short, you want about 3/4" shorter. get a stock set and cut them down with a new hole that you drill. $free.



    Me personally, when I lowered my car on Eibachs I corrected this with mount spacers. You can make them and install them yourself. Search "Vinnie spacers" on here and you should find how to make them. They go on the top and bottom of your engine and trans. mounts to correct the geometry of lowering which can cause vibrations and excess wear on the axles. I'm still running stock length dogbones.
