For some reason Springtech is the company that comes to mind for the manufacturer that Ty told me. I Googled a website for it, but it doesnt seem to exist.

I have contacted a manufacturer with good prices on custom springs purchases,I gave them my front and rear spring part numbers along with GM F41spec info,For the rear they said the variable rate coil would not be a problem,.Im going to take one for the team and go ahead and order my set. F41 spec in a 2" drop.If everything turns out great ,there will be a group buy discount available in a minimum of 5 sets,but the springs have to be the same spec,I'll let you guys know the full deal when they contact me .

Keep us posted. Those springs will work on my Lesabre, which would look especially nice lowered since I only have 15" wheels.

Sounds good. Tell them to hurry up! J/p. But I would like to get my self before Memorial day when I go to the beach. Since I can't afford any bags, I'm jus going to profile the car with some springs and small spokes. Hope Everything works out.

This should be made into a sticky.

It'* a done deal,I put my order in and paid for the springs.I was told that they should arrive aound 3 weeks time.I chose to get them in the nude because I didnt want to dish out another 60 bucks usd for the powdercoat,Im going to go ahead and order my KYB Gr2'* tonight and be have everything ready for the install.

The front coils cost me 138.60 per pair and the rear'* are 128.20 a pair,shipping is approximately 40 usd,so a little over 300 usd(cheaper on a group purchase),not too bad considering one manufacturer gave me a price 635 before shipping .Depending on if you want to go with the powdercoat finish (60usd),the final cost for the springs is reasonable considering they are a custom job.
