unfortunately there is nothing bonneville-specific for performance suspension items or lowering kits, any job will have to be custom, unless a company decides to pick up the ball and develop a kit

Any chance you could get enough people in for a group buy? probably need about 20 paid in advance to get springs made at a reasonable price. i'm sort of talking out my <edited> in terms of prices. I only speak of things i'v witnessed on other boards regarding new products and it seems they always need about 20 confirmed buyers to get the stuff made.

you would just need new springs up front probably be able to modify someone else'* struts to work.

the rear would auto level correct?
i guess you could replace the rear with mac phearson style but that would be a <edited>.

sorry to hi-jack your thread.

to the poster: your car looks nice if i didn't say it before. very clean.

They are actually smaller than the stock 17'*, the Enkei'* are 17X7, where the stockers were 17X7.5. I'm running a 235/55R17 and they're working great. Thanks again!!

Joe.
