    Eibach has a problem with the rear sagging over time, Here is another picture. They have been on the car for about 6 years now.

    It handles ok for having stock shocks. I have Blistines or how ever you spell it sitting in the garage waiting for a warm day. But im looking to do springs at the same time.

    Def wait on the springs cause they just fall out when you get the shocks loose. It is a pain in the putting rear shocks on these things, I did it today and hope to not do it for a VERY long time. Nothing real hard, you just have to disassemble half of your interior. BTW, if you have new speakers to put in, this would also be a good time for that

    It handled ok for stock shocks, Then again the shocks are 9 years old with 56k on them, I have heard alot of good thinks about the strano springs, alot of people run them and they are lite too! I am looking for a nice low look.

    I had the same problem, I still have Eibach sport lines in the front, with 1 LE's cut a little in the back, Bilsteins on all corners. This set up was originially on my TA, I transfered all the suspension to the Camaro, it rides great with sub fames and a hard top, it responds and rides Great for shocks/springs with 55k miles on them

    I was debating on new springs, Or cutting a little bit of the front springs just enough to drop the nose down.....

    My car's on Strano's (on stock DeCarbons in these pics, but now on Koni's). It's the ONLY way to go. You get a 1.25 drop and that's all you'll need. firm and responsive. Sam's also a GREAT source for info on how to set your car up, handling wise.

    We sell the splitter. It's in our store. Go check out the link in my sig. We're actually debating phasing them out, so we're running a special on them.

    As far as the wheels, yeah, it's an optical illusion. All 4 corners have 275/40/17's. The other photog is 6'5" so he gets this weird angle from the camera. He also shot both the track shots and the calendar pics.....hence why the car looks like it's on "big n' littles", lol.

    EDIT: here's the link:

    Luos, every time I see that car of yours, I think of the GMMG Blackbirds.
