aklizzard, definitely get the Eagle Mike doohickey, it is really the only choice to consider. Both his product and his customer service are outstanding. As for your choice of springs, I lean towards the torsion spring, even though installation is slightly more involved. (mostly just drilling a small hole for one end of the spring to reside) But if you go with an EM coil spring it is more than adequate, and an improvement over the OEM spring.
