so those will fit a sixxer? Cause I want to get them and they are cheap! wanna order a CAI and those springs with Christmas money and if I can get those springs then ill have enough hopefully!

Any amount of lowering that can be done to my 99 would be great cause the gap is terrible!

why would it hurt the ride quality? isolators just keep any metal on metal sound from happening...which still rarely happens with them out
