    Question on Lowering Springs???

    I found this package and was wondering what people thought.

    http://www.ws6project.com/user_stor/...oducts_id=2860

    I want to lower my ride so I've been doing some research. I haven't heard anyone mention having problems like they say in the add. See below

    (What most people don't realize is that just installing a set of lowering springs without addressing other components can actually have a detrimental effect on handling, acceleration traction, and ride quality. BMR's Lowering Package for the Fourth generation F-Body chassis comes complete with everything you need to not only correct these issues but to enhance handling as well.)

    It makes sense...
    What do you all think?
    How are the BMR Springs?
    If you have or had them, how was the ride?

    Seems like a good deal. I bought all those when I lowered my car, but seperately. Didn't know they had a kit. You
    should probably pick up some new shocks too and your golden.

    Edit: actually I believe you can get these individually from a sponsor here LMPERFORMANCE.COM for less than $500. Go check it out.

    I have BMR springs and love them. The ride quality is very comfortable. They do a great job of killing the 4x4 look without slamming the car.

    If you are going to go that route go straight to the BMR site. You can get it a lot cheaper there now. The springs are on sale for $195 and you can get the panhard bar and relocation brackets for around $220. The springs are good though. Just installed the exact same setup.

    Found them on the web site and your right, much better deal. I think I might give these a shot. I currently have Bilstein shocks on and I like them, but I'm not sure how they'll perform with the BMR.

    How long do you go before you change the shocks? I've had these on for a couple of years. Someone told me that your supposed to replace your shocks every 20,000 miles. That sound a little extreme, not to mention, expensive.

    I'm in the same boat as I just picked up a new z !

    I want to get an adjustable panhard bar. But with the relocation of the control arms... is this to help weight transfer to the rear like stock? I mean I'm totally not a drag racer so if the car stays flatter (on accel) after lowering I would rather not relocate anything.

    what is the lowering of the bmr springs?

    5abivt, you will want to get the relocation brackets after lowering the car as well as an adjustable panhard rod to recenter the axle. The relocation brackets will help to get the restore the angle of the control arms once the car is lowered, otherwise you will spin out alot...I found out the hard way.

    i went with stranos just because the customer service is top notch(doesn't get any better) and the springs are the best design before it got 'swiped'. i would never buy from a company that had to copy off somebody else to even compete.

    but thats just me, both springs are nice.
