    The two kits listed are just height but both are available with damping as well.

    Any prices just give me a shout and remember we offer price beat promise.

    For street use Weitec's work very well,(I've fitted loads of kits) If you live in an area that doesn't have a lot of speed humps and/or do the odd track day then Bilstein's maybe better suited.

    I have Weitecs and they are awesome. Also the Weitecs come with the ARB tab so you can fit an LCR front roll bar.

    LCR front ARB is 16mm which is smaller=less under steer.
