    QA1 F-Body F-Series Complete Kit

    I have a 2002 WS6, I would like to drop the car in the front no more than an inch. I will be driving this car daily, but would like it to be able to handle good in the curves. Would the QA1 F-Series Complete Kit work for me? Here are the specs:

    This complete QA1 shock/spring package includes:

    * (2) Front Shocks - 12 Way Single Adj.
    * (2) Rear Shocks - 12 Way Single Adj.
    * (2) Front Springs
    * Rear Shock Lower Mounting Hardware
    * Spanner Wrench


    Also Spring Rate? 275# or 300# or 325#

    Does anyone have this setup on their car and if so, how do you like it?

    I just got my car back on the road with QA1-12 adjustable shocks in back, and front. I also have the 300# springs in the front. I lowered my car about and inch and a half. Got it aligned this morning, the steering wheel is straight and the car dosen't pull either way. But, it bounces up and down like I was riding a horse! Any ideas on what is going on? I do have the stock springs in the rear. I've started out with all 4 shocks adjusted at 6. I then when to 12 in the front and 8 in the rear, still bounces pretty bad. Damn this sucks! Any ideas?

    Ok, I backed them all the way to the softest setting and everything settled down, so...now i'm just move one click at a time firmer until i get it right.

    2002 Firehawk

    I am doing QA1's front and rear today. I have an 02 Firehawk with the Bilstein suspsension upgrade. That means I have Bilstein shocks and Eiback springs. BMR reccommended keeping the Eiback springs front and rear since they are better than the one's they sell.

    Here's my question, does anyone know what the torque specs are for front and rear shock mounting bolts? I'm going to make a seperate post as well.
