    Don't believe everything you read.

    The SLP Bilstien Pkg came with SLP spec Shocks and SLP spec Eibach springs.
    This was installed at SLP's Facility not the factory.

    The fact that their car still had Decrapons means more likely someone else swapped springs before they got it.

    The 1996-mid 2000 SS/WS6 cars came with GM 1LE springs.
    In late 2000 (some time in Jan) GM Eliminated the 1LE option and subsequently all SS/WS6 cars came with the same Std springs as the rest of the V8 cars.

    The Bilstien Pkg was a SLP option.

    If I bought some oem 1LE springs would the ride height be the same? I have over 200k on the original springs/deCarbon shocks and I'm gonna get some bilsteins in the spring but I do not want to lower the car even though I would like some new springs due to mileage

    If you buy the original replacement springs for your car you will probably see a slight increase in height just because your springs have compressed a bit over time. If you go with the 1LE springs you may not see any difference in height due to the compression you have already experienced. I would be that you can get the 1LE spec springs from an aftermarket spring place.

    Strano has 1LE spec springs that lower the car 1.2 inches. I'd get aftermarket over the factory 1LE's even though they are rare.

    Finally remembered where I got my springs before. You might also do a search for Coil Spring Specialties. They can put together a set of just about any springs made to factory specs and usually very reasonable compared to aftermarket prices.
