I went with coilsprings.com after paulnold did.
I notcied his rear seemed to sit a little lower w/ the 1.5" drop all around so I lowered the front a little more. There is also nothing in my trunk (bare metal) so keep that in mind:

I'd suggest to a more performance oriented strut then the KYB. I know Bill told me one. I forget though..
Above 60 at times on the highway my car bounces more than it should.

With any lowering spring on stock replacement struts, you will prolly get a little bounce. Even on my KYB GR-2'*, my car bounces enough to make it irritating. You really need to find a strut that has better dampening properties.

I'm waiting for KYB to come out with AGX struts because the only solution for my car are $700 Koni struts.

Bonnevilles really need an affordable adjustible shock.
Probalby not going to make much profit though...
