I have Suspension Tehc. springs on my 88.5 LX and running standard Gab struts with no problems at all. About the only time you get skip on a CD player is when your CD sucks, your CD player sucks or hit a ditch with your Scort. I haven´t had any problems with skipping of my CD player with the Tech. springs installed. I have had them in since Spring of 2000.
