you can tell by inspecting them before you buy. look for wear and cracks. if they are garbage you'll be able to notice the difference if in doubt don't buy it.

Good luck "Slamming" an Edge, because of your torsion bars you can really only get about 2" drop in the front and there are no kits for an edge.

Im wanting to lower mine in the future as well. Once I graduate, commission in the navy, and get another car then I am gonna take my 03 edge and lower it. Of course that means a very good flip lit and then also a good coilover conversion. It will take a lot to slam an edge but it would be a sweet truck!

Nice! Got the whole video online? Or a link to it? I have a good 1 wheel burnout video myself! Took the tire to the steel belt!

I too want to bag my edge. So any help would be much appreciated. Besides I am Asian and therefore, I need to bag my truck. No stock height! No lifting! Either drop or pay a little more and get bags.
