Check with www.DomesticPerformance.com. Ty has some options for our cars including koni. He may be able to help you out. I am not in to lowering my car--so I don't know if what he has will work for your application. I do know that he has lowering options for Bonnevilles. Good luck.

Dont forget that if you lower your car anything lower than an inch, you will probably have to get a camber kit as well. Unless you have the money to be buying a set of tires every couple of months.

If you do replace your struts, please let me know. I have a bad motor in my left rear strut and to replace it I have to buy a pair from GM. No aftermarket with ride control and air ride available. I would be interested in your old struts.

I have a new deal worked out with the factory that makes the springs and I need an order of 12. The order limit used to be 25. Each buy gets 4, 1.5 lower springs for $260.00. Shipping costs will depend on your location. This means once there are 12 people who order drop springs the product will be made. Your money will not be collected until the 12 orders are made. When you "buy" into the group purchase you are using a "check or money order" deal so you really donít have to pay until the 12-quantity order is complete.

Custom drop springs just went up to $650.00 not my choice just the new cost. Most factories will charge $800.00

So we need 12 87-91 92-99. 2000-2003

These are top quality springs and this company makes them with the best quality material around. You cannot get better. The site will be adjusted ASAP.

As we speak I am waiting for a first custom pair. It took alot longer than I thought but soon I will have pictures.

Hey whats up with the Coil over anything new in that area? My struts are pretty much shot and would probably rather go with coilover instead of getting dropped springs and new struts.

Azwed,

Drop me a e-mail and I can get you all the prices and options. We can also build it in phases so you dont have to drop all the coin right away.

Ty
