Default MSM shocks on NA

Anyone here ever put the MSM shocks on an NA? I have located a good used set and am thinking about putting them on my 97. Pros, cons appreciated.

I did it on my NA. They work great but dont use the stock springs as you're gonna look like a truck. Get some H&R race springs and the ride and look will be just right.

Same here...use shorter springs, and get NB tophats as well since NB shock bodies are usually longer.

IIRC, the MSM Bilsteins are the longest-bodied NA/NB shocks.

Do yourself a favor and use Swift springs in stock rates. Otherwise, some additional information on your plans of use would be helpful.

Incorrect and a waste of money. I literally have the most MSM shock mod experience of anybody in the country. PM me op for the wisdom.
