I recently put some ST springs on my car. Of course i had the common rear sag issues so i cut about a half coil out of the front and it looks a tab better and does not bounce. I wanted to just see how slammed some others starquest owners may be. I will post pics of mine when i finish my lowering.

They are fixed up in the position, welded the pivot point, and cut and rewelded the face of the assembly on to get the headlight aimed straight, motors are gone. You can go through my resto thread on the car, but it's getting pulled apart for good right now.
