dang too late for me.......was just about to post low mileage S struts and springs for sale as I coiled over in PSS9s. These could be a great base for this kit.

I don't want to ship them though....too big and heavy

I wonder how it would work, we have got these huge welded lower spring perch, if this really is for 986 then I would sell my PSS9 and get a set of these and convert my FSD to coilover with a stiffer spring. From talking with Koni, one of the major factors for going with lower/stiffer springs with the FSD is keeping off the bump stops, but with a setup like this it looks like you would have some control over the spring and spring rates and could make sure to minimize hitting the bump stops.
