Default Need THREE test cars

Wanted:

Test cars for a suspension modification. Simple installation, low cost. Requirements are as follows:

1. Owner must have $50 ready to go out the door (parts may be sold later if test is unsatisfactory on your car).

2. ONE car of each type:

a) 92-99 SSEi or SSE, FE2 Suspension ORIGINAL. No new struts, shocks, or springs.
b) 87-99 LE/SE/SLE FE1 suspension ORIGINAL. No new struts, shocks, or springs.
c) 87-99 LE/SE/SLE FE1 suspension NEW front and rear shocks, GOOD springs.

3. Confidentiality is a MUST. I won't have this leaking out until it'* proven or evey tom, dick, and harry (and susie) will be spending money on something that may not work for their setup.

Test cars for 92-99 MODIFIED FE2 suspension and 92-99 NEW OEM FE2 suspension are already testing. (92-99 Modified FE2 suspension test is already a big positive, 92-99 STOCK NEW OEM FE2 will be testing soon).

Place your resume and description of your CURRENT suspension setup in this thread. Cornering may be improved dramatically, as well as preventing rear-end squat on launches.

I have the FE1 here. All original other than having putting a NAPA standard end-link in the LF due to the original having been MIA when I purchased the car.

I have F41 springs on hand, but can/will wait to install them until later.
I also have 235/55/16 tires if that matters.

Any lowering involved at all??? I'd be almost game for this.....
96 SE.....only sus mods are endlinks and some spring spacers in the rear(I was starting to sag ) Also "18'* if that matters.....but I'd love to get rid of the rear sagging on takeoff!!!

Would my car be elegible? I have Gabriel Struts in the front..the rear, i really don't know because they were installed by fleet farm last year.

Otherwise, suspension is unaltered except for replaced sway bar end-links...

Sounds cool

Keep 'em coming. I'm going to be very analytical about the selection.

Lowering? I said INEXPENSIVE.
