Default Drop Springs???

Well I wasn't going to do this but I might anyway. I oddly enough had a front spring break on my wifes 2000 SSEi. I think the bearing cup that the spring sits in went bad & caused it or the spring just had a weak spot. It broke at almost one full coil at the top of the spring.
Any way If I replace it with a stock spring I'm going to order two just to assure that they match in ride hight. So I thought if I'm going to spend the money why not order a set of drop springs & tighten up the ride as well? I don't wont to slam it, but just take an inch or so off if I do. But for what I have seen no one makes a direct fit for the Bonnie, is their anything that will fit them?

Default unreal!

The exact same thing happened to me! Passenger side front spring top ring just broke out of nowhere. I ended up replacing both springs and the struts myself
