No, Grand Prix springs will not work. Lowering springs for your car will be custom. Do a search on 'lowering springs'. You'll find a couple members that have done it.

That'* correct. I think 95naSta (Mike) is still getting things right after his drop. Trying to adjust other stuff to get his geometry back.

Some places sell a KIT to get it right, but there is nothing like that for H bodies.

Yep. I got 2" front and 1.5" rear F41 spec drop springs from www.coilsprings.com. The rear 1.5" drop ended up being closer to the 2" front.
With my the drop I needed 1* camber bolts for the rear. The front however had plenty of adjustment left.
Right now I'm trying to figure out how long my endlinks should be to bring the preload of the strut bar back to factory specs.

I wondered the same thing but then thought that maybe 1" would not affect the other parts of the suspension as much as your 2" drop did. But that'* probably just wishful thinking I suppose.
