Suspension Max Lowering Springs

Suspension Max... This outfit out of California- has anyone tried their lowering springs? I searched for them on TCCOA and didn't come up with anything. They sell for $155.00 for all four. Definitely less money than Eibach, but are they any good? Suspension Max advertises they keep costs down by doing their own on-site manufacturing but I'm a little iffy if no one has used them before.
Any thoughts or suggestions? Half the cost of Eibach sounds nice, but I don't want to ride like I'm on cut springs.

Thanks for any input-

1989 Thunderbird SC 3.8L..... SOLD
1964 Falcon HT 302/C4
1984 Girlfriend, Low Miles

When you're looking at springs there are 2 basic things that affect your ride:

Are they linear or progressive
What are the spring rates

Then try to search on reliability, get the poop from people who have used them.

Suspension Max is just a distributor; they don't make springs themsleves -- SpringTech does.
- If they are telling you they make them in house, their misdirection would be a point of concern for me (i.e.: what else are they misstating?)

There isn't diddly squat about Springtech on their website. No technical specs, no applications list, nothing. It makes you wonder just how "engineered" these vehicle specific springs are exactly.

SpringTech is in turn allegedly a second label for Canadian Motorsports
- Also sold on eBay a lot.

Do your research and decide if it's worth it to you.
