    Best way to lower= Strano's Springs and Koni Shocks.

    Ok alternatives to the Strano Springs are the Eibach LT1 Pro-Kit and the Hotchkis.
    Alternatives to the Koni Shock would be Bilstein.

    I have strano springs with bilsteins. With other suspension parts. Love the ride.
    To me seems like the front still looks higher. But I guess it could be just me.

    I have Stranos with Bilsteins on my Camaro and love the way it looks. In addition, I was still able to stuff 315s in the rears on 18s.

    I'm also an advocate of Strano springs with the Koni 4/4's. I've had that set-up a few years now and have 0 complaints. If your wallet cannot swing the Koni's, then your next best alternative is Bilsteins.

    Whatever you do, do not put a lowering spring on without complimenting it with a good shock.

    Don't forget when you lower you will also need to change a few of the other suspension components. At the very least you will need an adjustable panhard bar.

    If can afford Koni's get them. If you're on a budget get the Bilsteins(SLP or HD).

    Other components :
    1. Adjustable Panhard Bar- for rear end
    centering after vehicle lowering as well as clearance for running larger tires.

    2. Lower control arm relocation brackets- reposition your instant center by changing your lower control arm angle for improved traction. Relocation brackets lower the rear of the control arm up to 3", a must for some lowered vehicles to correct lost suspension geometry. By lowering your vehicle, you are changing the lower control arm angle allowing the rear mounting point to sit higher than the front. This may, in return, cause wheel hop and a great deal of traction loss. Lower control arm relocation brackets allow you to correct
    this angle and gain back much needed traction.

    PS: 4th Gen Firebirds and Camaros do not have struts. They have shocks on all 4 corners.

    Here is a good thread I started when I was tweaking my suspension. I only did springs and adj. panhard bar because the car is just a cruiser.
