Be interested to see what the Fat Cat 3.25 spring perches do. I am looking at the FM springs (sale) with the linear bump stops and I am trying to assess what the spring perches will do with the standard Bilstein shocks.  I still have the original tires and I was thinking of going up one size (215), but it sounds like you might get rubbing depending on the tread width of the tire.  I am asumming that the spring perches will let you optimize the height for look and tire rubbing.

If the FM springs don't change the height that much, are the perches a good option?

The FM springs don't change the ride height much with the MSM Bilstein shocks, so yes, the FCM 3.25" NB perches are a great option for adjusting ride height and/or corner weighting.

Mega bump,

Considering getting FM springs on stock silver Bilsteins as a bandaid till I can get full coilovers, anyone else have any opinions on this other than telling me to wait till i can do it right?

It's fine, I run FM springs on Bilstein HD shocks.  Basically the same shock we have.  This was a recommendation to me from FCM.

Shane, trade me your MSM stuffs for my H&R coils. I'll give you $300 credit on your Bilsteins.

Kyle just won this thread, thanks for the reply Silver no more uberbumage from me Smiley

Just for future info, got this reply from Keith Tanner

I've seen it done, and Bill at FM reports it drives "okay". I think they're underdamped and the springs work better with the Tokicos.

The Bilsteins are fine.

Disparaging the boot is a bootable offence.

I run FM springs on the stock shocks, much better than standard.
