And before anyone argues about the kit (or another) being the best because this because that: it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter if the components of the kit are made out of platinum and diamonds. At the end of the day you're on stock dampers, a far from optimal setup and you're just wasting time/money.

If you absolutely must then just get a set of Eibach springs (very mild drop like .6 in) and camber plates of your choice and save yourself ~$600. Oh but it's not adjustable? Again it's pointless to have threaded collars to go low on stock dampers.
I agree that this is not an optimal set up for a track car, but its a lot better to have linear springs with higher rate with camber plates than stock and still be able to change from comfort ride to firm by a push of a button.
What if stock hight is maintained with this kit to protect stock dumpers?
Maybe suspension experts have any suggestions?
