    How do I know what springs I have?

    My 2001 was order made, but I dont know what it sits on spring wise, under the car are bilstein shocks. I know slp has a level one and two set up, but how do I know what springs I have, and did slp put all bilstein shocks on the SS, or did they put bilstein shocks with stock springs? I know there are a few different questions in there but trying to get to the bottom of this.

    What color are your springs? Bilstein shocks were a performance upgrade from SLP you could order from the factory. Most SS's came standard equipped with the DeCarbon shocks though which were orange in color.

    I'm not that familiar with the SLP springs, but I know someone here recently posted a chart with various spring types, colors, and spring rates showing the differences.
    It's on jackstands.

    Well I know forsure its the bilstein shocks, as for the springs they are Blue. I just got all BMR springs, lower control arms, re-location brackets, and tranny mount, adj panhard rod. thats why im trying to figure out the springs that are on the car to see what gains I will make in ride hight and stiffness

    The only one's I see on SLP's site are the Eibachs so someone else will have to chime in as I don't believe the one's you have are those.

    Eibach's are not blue, at least I don't think they are. I have seen an Ebay lowering spring which was blue before. SLP may have sold a blue lowering spring at one time too though.

    Well, Eibach's only lower the car 1" so if you have a similar spring it probably wouldn't be too noticeable.

    Are your springs blue? If not your car should ride at the same height as any other z28/ss.
