    Question form a Nube from Garland also. What springs did you go with? The Stranos? I'm wanting to drop my car a bit also and really try to do my homework up front. Any complaints on the springs you did use at this point? Any major mods to the car?
    Thanks for any info and insite you can give me.

    Springs would be Strano and Shocks would be Bilsteins....going strictly by the colors. PHB looks like UMI possibly

    Sorry, my 01 SS. My 79 is already lowered in the front and am not going to drop the back so I can bolt on the DR's when needed. I'm looking for a nice even drop on my 01 and have the SLP chrome 17's on it that are perfect. I need new shocks anyhow and thought I'd drop it while I was at it.
    Thanks guys.

    Strano's are the best lowering spring. Ideally though, you would want upgraded shocks as the stockers will not compliment any lowering spring very well...so I've heard. You can always do the hose mod in the rear to get 3/4" drop.

    I dont want anyone misunderstanding me, I think its hot looking, however it looks almost the same height!! It will look even hotter if it was dropped another 1" all the way around. Looking at your pics though, I see your exhaust IS pretty low and large in diamter,....so...............looks good the way it is. LOL!
