    I want to throw out a question here. I am about to put on new shocks and struts. I was considering dropping the car. Does it make it hard to jack up when you need to work on it.

    not if you use the factory jack in the trunk.

    I use a 3 1/2 ton floor jack and I have 2 ramps. I was wondering if those who lowered there cars had to use a lift to work on there cars after.

    My car is lowered, when I put it on the lift at work I have to drive up on 2x4 blocks so I can get the lift arms under my car. And when I put it on the drive on lift I have to put blocks under the ramps or my SFC will scrape driving on. It's a real pain in the ass.

    What about with a floor jack, is that a pain on the ass? What kind of springs did you use?

    I have a little aluminum harbor freight jack and it got under the car with stranos on it. With the eibachs on the old trans am i had to jack up the front before i could get the jack under the rear since they sagged.

    They make floor jacks for low cars like Corvettes and other lowered vehicles

    Thanks Cutlass. Looks like I will have to get another jack then. Hey tater, I just ordered the Eibachs today and I have the Bilsteins HDs. Haven't put them on yet. Did you like yours? The stance and ride?

    cancel your order on the eibachs!!!
    Which ones did you get the pro kit or the sportline kit? If i were you i'd stick it out for some stranos. Went from eibachs to them and it greatly improved the ride comfort. The eibachs tend to sag after a while, at least the sportlines do

    I got the prokit. Mike at WS6store recommended the prokit. He said he didn't like the sportlines. He doesn't have any experience with Strano. I actually asked him about them before I bought the Eibachs. How low is the drop with the stranos? The prokit is 1.5 and 1.3.

    The pro kit is the better of the two. Stranos lower the car 1.2" and are guaranteed not to sag.
    If you still have a chance i'd cancel on em, thats speaking of experience from the sportlines not the pro kit but i have not heard any complaints about stranos

    Didn't realize there was that much of a difference. I will take your word for it. I hope I can cancel my order. Ws6store.com, ships out like Same day. I think I would like 1.2" over 1.5, as well. Do I need LCA relocation brackets or anything else, since I am dropping?

    Dont wanna jack this thread up with suspension talk but there is a lot involved in properly lowering your car, like adjustable suspension components including relocation brackets. This thread has some helpful information for ya.

    And don't forget a front end alignment once its all done
