    Unhappy Question-lowering springs

    Is there affordable lowering springs that I can use with existing stock suspension components? If so should I use 1 inch lower in the front and 2 in the rear to make it appear level? It looks like the back is way too high. Thanks.

    How much you want to spend?

    Einbach LS1 Pro Kit Springs $239
    Einbach Drag Springs + Airbag 269
    Hotchkins 1" Drop Springs $259
    Strano 1.22" lowering Springs $249


    I have Hotchkins and like 'em, a lot of ppl here recommend Strano's. I've also seen a combo of the Einbach Pro in the front and Drag in the rear.

    Whatever you do or use make sure you get a four wheel alignment afterward.

    have you tired the rubber hose mod for the backs? that will lower it a bit and it's cheap. that might make it look level before you spend all the money. Normally stock it looks like the front is higher.

    Sry i got back so late. you remove the rubber isolator that sits on top of the spring on the rear shocks. Then buy some hose and slice it in half and cut enough to go around the top of the springs. the hose is to avoid the springs from hitting metal to metal.
