      Obviously I can search for these coilovers, but I can't really find anything that explains the major difference between these 2. I mean, I know that the PSS9 includes 9 position compression/rebound adjustment, but for someone like me who is probably never going to AutoX my car, is the extra $300 really worth it? Wouldn't I be just fine with the regular PSS coilovers? I know that PSS9s get a lot of talk on this forum, but what about the regular PSS? Anyone riding on these? TIA.

      The only difference between the two coilovers is the adjustible damping. They both have the same spring rates and offer the same height adjustibility.

      i've heard the pss (not 9's) are basically set on "5" permanently, the 5 being from the presets of the pss9 system.

      is that true?

      i was planning on getting the PSS system and putting them at stock height.

      better suspension geometry, better wheel wear, hope to get longer life out of wheel bearings, stock look, better comfort, no grinding on the pavement.

      bump for my reasons that out-number lowering....

      if i'm wrong about any of them i'd like to hear a different view, but i'm pretty sure that my reasons for getting coilovers and using them the way I want to are justified.
