Default Aftermarket lowering springs??

I did a search and the general concensus seems to be that no one makes a replacement spring for the 00+ bonnie, is this still true? I'd like to drop it an 1" to 1 1/2" for appearance and handling as well. I think I did read that someone makes a set for the Aurora that will work on our cars, is this true and if so, can I get a link? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Joe.

I requested a quote for custom set, we'll see what they say in 2-3 business days. I'll update when I hear from them. I requested a price for a set of drop springs, 1 to 2 inches.

"Call for pricing". Must be ridiculously high, they list a $1,200.00 exhaust system but wont price a set of springs? What'* up with that?

the 1200 is completely stainless and that includes labor and welding... its not rediculously priced for what you get...

I believe i heard on Auroraclubna.com that the lowering kit runs for about $400

No, I wasnt saying the exhaust system was over-priced, just wondering why they wouldnt list the price of the springs if it was less than the exhuast. And I'm sure that stainless exhaust is primo.
