    Just bought a Z28 and have suspension questions

    I just picked it up a few days ago. The previous owner installed Hotchkis lowering springs on the car, and while it gives it a nice stance, the ride is pretty harsh. Are the Hotchkis springs one of the more stiffer springs on the market, or are they all like this?

    I have Eibach springs I bought from SLP and the car dropped about 1" but did not seem to affect the ride.

    On decent pavement, the car doesn't handle too bad. But any sort of imperfections, and the bumps reverberate through your spine.

    Do you guys know a place I could pick up some stock springs? Besides comfort, it sucks scraping over everything.

    You should be able to buy stock springs from the for sale section here, or post an ad saying WTB (wanting to buy)

    What kind of shocks are on the car with the springs?
