We have put the first AST 5100 set onto a tester's Porsche 911 and worked out all of the questions such as: spring lengths, spring rates, tender springs, optional front end links + brackets, swaybars, and more. The AST 5000 series shock sets are now for sale [URL="http://www.vorshlag.com/product_info.php?cPath=233_234_236&products_id=387"]on our website[/URL].
Check out the link on our website above for the optional components. These pictures show some of these details, below:

The final ride height was considerably lower than the picture above shows. The factory suspension has a bit of a "reverse rake" but the lower, final setup does not - it looks right and handles very well. We've basically quadrupled the spring rates and it rides better than before. Another great AST + Vorshlag suspension solution. 8)
