Default 96 olds 88 LS lowering springs

If needed or posted in wrong fourm move please

I've been searching for ever and can not seem to find a set of lowering springs for my 96 olds 88 the FE1, FE9 and F17 suspension codes besides domestic performance (which seems to be closed? ) does anyone else have lowering kits for these codes, or could some other kit work with these cars?? i'm already adding a 7/8" rear sway bar

Go to www.coilsprings.com. Tell them how stiff you want by codes FE1 FE2 F41.
Paulnold was the first to by springs from them and I just recently installed mine. I'd suggest the extra coating.
I'm not sure about the olds but I got 1.75" front drop and 1.5" rear.. And, when installed, the front and rear drop was almost the same. Meaning, the rear seems to sag past what you want so you may want to compensate like I did.
