    Blistein shocks and BMR springs

    I'm considering getting some blistein shocks and BMR springs. Are there any bang for buck brands that might give me a better deal than that. the struts are around 350 and the springs are 220. (580 total). These two items will work together right? Sorry, i'm a newb to suspension....

    Many people say that those shocks are too soft when combined with aftermarket lowering springs. The best advise I can give you is to talk to Sam Strano about your suspension questions.

    If Sam can't take your call he will call you back. I spoke with him for about 30 minutes and he was really really helpful in helping me make my decisions. Another good person to talk to about suspension questions is Eugenio_SS. He has also been a huge help as well as Sam for me and many others.

    I got an Eibach Pro-Kit for Christmas and I don't want to put those springs on the car with the stock shocks because of the increased spring rate. I did a considerable amount of research (talking to Sam & Eugenio_SS & posting on many different F-body forums) to figure out what shocks best suited my application. I just got a set of Koni Single adjustable shocks (Front). I'm going to buy the rear shocks as soon as I get my tax return money. Hope this helps!
