    Just have your girl friend put some Koni Single Adjustable shocks on the car. Use the lower spring perch on the fronts and remove the isolator in the back and do the heater hose mod. Better yet, have her call Sam Strano at Stranoparts.com He will hook you up.

    That's all we have to do? I take it we use out stock springs? How much of a drop will this get us? I have a 1995 Trans am Convertible with 18" wheels and would like to get the drop as well and wasn't sure on the springs? Thanks

    remove the rear isolator from the top of the spring and replace with 5/8" diameter heater hose. this will drop the rear about 1".

    and if getting Koni SA for the front, the shock has 2 perch locations for the spring to sit on... 1 is stock height, the other one is close to a 1" drop.
    the hose-mod takes care of the drop in the back... you get great shock, great handling, car remains confortable... you can always get a front swaybar for even better handling, if that's what you are looking for.
