[DML] Re: Eibach springs/shock set

There is 3 positions to adjust the rear spring seats on PJ Grady's
shocksso I can fix it for the rear. James told that the final high is
reached after about 1000 miles and I put on them only 250 on them.

To mix shocks and spring, both parts must have the same working area.
After it's a matter of characteristics, you can use Eibach springs
with Spax, Koni or other brand of shocks.

I did not complain because handling is there (much much better than
before) and I think that PJ Grady's performance shocks are really good
with Eibach springs.
