Im not sure about the 2000+ models,But i beleive the 92-99'* can all use the same coils,I will shoot them an emailfor more info,People interested in the group purchase would have to agree on a drop and spec of the coils.

okay,

i understand we can not use the GP springs and we apparently need to go custom, but what is all this FE1 FE41 stuff you are all talking about?

Also, can't we just heat up one or two coils like they do on the mod shows to lower the car? i am sure their may need to be some requeching involved, but it would sure seem cheaper to me.

no the GP springs cane be used

the F41 is the RPO code of hte suspension, that is the firmest ride available, the SE/SLE have the FE1 except some 92-93 SE'*, the SSE/SSEi have the FE2, and some are lucky enought to have the F41

the rears are a progressive coil. You should not just heat up the coils and bend them, the ride will suffer greatly and in is not safe to do

So what happen with the group buy? Was everyone just talk? I'll settle for a 1" - 1.5" drop but I don't think people were SERIOUSLY interested. Anyways, I'm still up for it if there is 4 more people (We need 5 right?)

Ive been around a few times ,I havent spoke with the coil spring people since getting my order.Feel free to email them yourself http://www.coilsprings.com .As I mentioned before ,I dont even know if the deal on a group purchase is still on .For my one off custom set I paid a little over 300$,it will be cheaper for the U.* guys due to cheaper shipping. Shoot them an email or call them and give them your for Info.The springs are great,nice tight ride,handling improved 10 fold, (along with a couple other mods),I painted mine with rustoleum(thanks smellbird for the ), and I saved money that way.As for specs well I told them I wanted them in a f41 with a 1-1/2 drop,thats all I can tell ya.
