is any of you interested in a set of lowering springs made for our cars nothing drastic 1/2 inch to 1 inch. I got a local place that said they would make a set for 400 or so depending on how many ppl would be interested

i would be interested, but 400 seems kinda steep to me, especially for a group buy

you can get lowering springs for a GP for about 200

well he said he would have to talk to the supplier and the 400 was a guess on his part. I will tell him when he calls me back about the GP thing but I will see what can be done

I got quoted around $300 for the set from Coil Spring Specialties.

Front spring price*:
$148.40 per pair

Rear spring price*:
$138.60 per pair

I relize they would be more than off the shelf parts like Grand Prix'* etc so I'm ok with a slight mark up.


Yeah I'm in for a group buy if we can get something together.

I will tell him the price when he calls and we will go from there
I will not make any promises but I bet he would consider it if we got him proof or a direct quote

2000+ Deville springs will work: http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=76447

$230 for a real nice drop: http://www.gripmotorsports.com/pi~pn...ings-7365.html

If he can beat that price, I'm interested. Otherwise, I'll do the sprint springs.

I might be interested but need to know more info. Do they have a Bonne and have they actually produced one with the correct load rating based on the actual weight?

Those Sprint springs drop front and rear 1.7". That'* too much drop for our cars. We would need skid plates.

I would not want more than 1" drop but an increase in spring rate of 20%.......then the shocks will have to be upgraded and then the seats will have to be bolstered and then..........

.......maybe not.
