The competition springs are built better, and will hold up better under stress. However, if you don't plan on hopping or doing anything outrageous in your car go with the street.

NONE. spring steel is spring steel and the tonage tells you how much they put up for.

no matter what they call them if they are both fullstacks they are the same.

any idea as to why the 4 tons would cost $40 more than the 4 1/2 tons?

there is a diff. its the bound and rebound of the spring
i have a 3 ton real comp spring (like $300 dollar real)and when u just drop it from 3 foot off the ground it bounces like 5 foot
did it to a 3 1/2 it only got like 2 feet
so yes there is a diff...

do you really think that's how you findout how much rebound the springs has??? -throwing them into the ground... LOL!
-i mean do you REALLY think that??? :roflmao: :roflmao: :roflmao: :roflmao:

i've read alot of funny stuff on here but this one takes the price!!!
"throwing them into the ground" :roflmao: :roflmao: :roflmao: :roflmao: :roflmao:

but seriously, spring rebound comes from 2 things:
how fast the wraps rise and how thick the springsteel is...
that allso makes up how many tons they are.
