yes. you need to call sam at stranoparts.com and talk to him and he will go over all that with you when you order."The Camaro SS looks like it could kick your ass. The Trans Am WS6 looks like its on its way over to do it."
treat stressful situation like a dog. if you can't eat or hump it, then piss on it and walk away.
keep your foot in it,till you see god

they're valved for stock height/rate springs, so they will not dampen a lowering spring properly

If you don't have the money to do a decent quality shock just use the stockers if you are willing to put up with a harsher ride.
I got kybs with the sportlines and it rides great. over 20k km and it still rides great (for what i paid). I can't say they are a great shock because my brothers stock 97 ss with lvl 2 slp suspension option was superb with the sportlines so I know the bilsteins kick their butt.
I wish I didnt buy kybs and just kept the stock shocks. No shocks are designed for a 2 inch drop so i wouldnt really want to spend $1k just to know the lowering springs are killing them. I had custom length shocks made for my vette by Bilstein that were shorter by 1.5 inches when fully extended. Works like a charm.
If you have the money and don't want to regret your decision. Listen to Mr.Strano its what he does.
