They go really low, but never as low as bags (when the bags are done correctly ). My rear struts+bags compress to a full 2 inches shorter than the VMAXX's if you were to install the VMAXX's without any springs at all.

Bags just allow you to do things that aren't physically possible with coilovers (i.e. bumper on the ground, arches lying on tire, body resting on the rear control arms, tucking front wheel, etc).

hahahah check your rear....they come partially notched from the factory. They meant for it to be bagged

I gotta make sure I can get the front low enough before I start chopping at the rear. I don't want to end up with a bunch of rear rake.
