there has been some discussion as to the fact IF they are the same. Some of the Part numbers cross, and others have not been checked. I would like to lower but am unsure

Sprint also makes lowering springs that lower the car slightly more as well

I think 1.2 " is pretty good and should give up to much on ride quality...

I can not see how it would. There wouldn't have to be any cutting involved.. And if you know people like my service adviser who said If you put the STS heads on it and have problems We'll make sure it goes through lol

I'm looking into seeing what fits then I have to fire up keystone and see what my price compared to that price is.... Also I need to do some research in what the best for ride quality and comfort is.

What if we all chip in & buy ONE set of the "Cadillac 00-07 DeVille/DTS (V Eibach Pro-Kit Springs (3874-140)"
Then we use someone from here as our gineapig & that way will see what fits, what not & a way to fix problems.
Then we talk about a group buy.
