Any pics after install? Would love to see how low the drop or lack of drop.

I'm also looking for a posts list needed for the conversion

I'm certainly impressed thus far. Ride height should be about perfect for me once settled. The dampers are top notch with a lifetime warranty. HD are certainly the way to go over the B6 when running shorter springs.
