Default 2000 ssei lowering????

has anybody here found aftermarket lowering springs for the 2000 newer ssei? i only want it about 1-2" lower than stock. haven't had any luck finding anything for my car in terms of suspension, except for the strut tower brace from the gxp?

the Caddy STS springs are 'Believed' to work on the 00+ Bonnevilles, but noone has confirmed

You will probably have to go to a custom spring shop and have it done.......or go with an air adjustable set up.

all of my research confirms the likelyhood of them working... no one has had the balls to try it yet

Although the springs will fit, how do you know what the ride height will come out to
The front weight would be critical.

Hmmmm.....maybe depends on the year of SSEi but mine weighs 3800 lbs with a distribution of 59 F / 41 R, so 2242 / 1558

So if the weight for the STS is accurate it should be A OK.

if anyone lives in the same area as the eibach plant in california, i spoke with one of the engineers, and he said all they need is for someone to let them use a car and they can create an application for the bonnevilles. No one has ever brought them a car.
