    Hotchkis Springs (Binding) 02 Z28

    Has anyone had issues with these springs, I was told the my spring coils are binding and causing a clunking sound. I was also told that because of the springs my a-arms are hitting the frame. Is this normal? My car is a 2002 Z28

    Never heard of that before. How much did you lower it?

    I know on the 68-72 chevelles have a problem with binding coils with a 2 inch drop, but I have never heard of that on a F-body. We had to change our sale info on the drop coils because of that.
