    2002 TA Springs and shocks

    I recently purchased, used, a set of so called lowering springs and shocks.
    Has any one heard of Paxton springs and de carbon (Delphi)shocks. The seller told me they are lowering springs of about one inch. I can not find anything on these springs and do not want to install until I know exactly what they are.
    Thanks

    Never heard of them, The only Paxton automotive related company that I know makes superchargers. De Carbon Shocks are just stock shocks, you already have them on your car. I hope you paid less than $100 for this. You do not want to use stock de-carbon shocks with lowering springs. Ride quality will no be good and you will blow out the shocks in 10-15K miles.

    Spring

    I am really confused too about the Paxton Springs. The springs are very clearly identification as "Paxton P/N 8001463F" and the rears 8001463R.
    Thanks everyone for the letting me know about the De Carbon shocks. Does anyone know when GM discontinued the De Carbon shock? I read on the De Carbon website that GM stopped buying them in 1999.
    I still want to find out the springs. I have emailed Sam Strano also.

    paxton doesn't ring a bell to me... can anyone check the stock spring #s that are on the springs ?
    I have a gut feeling that you ended up w/ stock springs + shocks.

    I spoke to Sam, he doesn't know where they came from. He did not know if anyone produced these springs for Paxton. Help

    I spoke with Paxton Superchargers. Paxton made springs 4 or 5 years ago. The company has been sold a couple of times. No history. Did anyone ever purchase springs from Paxton? Part number in previous thread...Thanks
