    well i guess with coliovers you get a harsher firmer ride, must go slower over speed bumps and entry to car parks

    but it will handle better and look much much better lol

    pros - you get the ride height you want

    cons - pretty much everything else

    hard as hell if you would like to keep your teeth buy springs and shocks but you can get the ride height perfect to what you want because springs never sem to look the right height for my liking either front is too heigh and backs too low or the other way round
