    Is anyone running the Canuck Motorsport Springs?

    I was running these in my Cobalt and they worked great good ride and nice drop Had some understeer like all fwd's but after the rear sway bar went in it could spit the rear end out. So I was thinking of trying them. Any info would be great.

    I e mailed to find out what the spring rates were.

    Also I was reading on the summit sight the pro kit won't fit convertables ??

    Hi, friendly Canuck !!!

    Have never heard of CanuckMotorsport.
    I recommend you ask them the following questions:
    1. Are the springs linear or progressive ?
    2. What are the spring rates ?
    3. How much lowering relative to stock height ?

    If they can't answer those 3 basic questions, just don't consider them.

    As for summit's info
    It seems they don't know squat about suspension...

    There is no difference whatsoever between convertibles and hardtop/t-tops.
    Whatever fits on them fit on convertibles.

    On top of that, I've had the prokits on my car for awhile.
    I'd consider talking to ppl that know their suspension stuff. www.stranoparts.com is a great place. I've ordered many stuff from there... and shipping ain't bad.

    Thanks Canuck brother. I just thought the cm springs were a good price with no boarder tax. Also it is weird on their site they list different springs for the Camaro and the Ta ..ps your car looks sick.

    Here is what they said .
    Thanks for your interet Chris
    Rates are Front 350 Rear 135
    The drop is approx 1.75 front and rear from the vehicles as new height.
    The fronts are not progressive but the rears are
    Just a note on progressive springs. Most springs advertized as progressive are really a 2 rate spring. The progressive part is used to fill the droop on a lowered spring but one the car is a load height the springs act as linear rate. This is the case with ours as well

    I also second Eugenio's suggestion to get in touch with www.stranoparts.com due to Sam Strano's experience and opinions on many suspension pieces for our f-bodies.

    Springs will vary depending on whether you want a suspension that is geared towards 1/4 performance or handling(read cornering, canyon carver), and shocks are more important for suspension upgrades.

    Now, if all this is for looks, then what I just wrote doesn't matter.

    that means that fronts are close to stock rates, while the rear are quite a bit stiffer... not a good combination.
