    I have Method Rally 502s on Geolander A/T-S 245/65.

    I don't have much rub unless I'm packed heavy w/ gear, cargo, people.

    I'm curious how STI JDM springs would feel. I would like a cost effective suspension improvement. I understand it's a 15mm lower? If that was the case, I would need new tires. Not sure what I should do as far as suspension and components to achieve better turning, and ride quality. I would still like to go 50-60 mph down washboard dirt roads when I'm in that environment. Will STI springs not be suited for this?

    I do some off-roading here and there (Dirt roads (fire roads, jeep roads, trail heads in UT all over the state, OR, CO, N. CA, ID). Unfortunately, those "off-road" days don't equal but 3-4 weeks out of the year.

    Thoughts on lowering 15mm for better turning/apexing while keeping somewhat of an offroad capable stance?

    I'm no Fozroamer climbing red rocks in Moab, Canyonlands, St. George etc lol. Just like the function of being able to make a quick getaway for a weekend/week of camping, mtn biking etc.

    Congrats on the new XT... triple armor kit is a good investment to protect it.

    I don't recall using any bolts like you describe. I believe everything I used was a standard hex head bolt.
