    shocks and coils??which ones

    alright i have a 94 formula and my shocks im pretty sure are still stock. i just bought the car about two months ago so i know of alot that it has but theres still alot i dont. anyways theres alot of creaking and squeaking, not sure if its from shocks or springs,but the shocks bushings look shot. now i need some help finding some good shocks and probably springs. i would love to drop my car, but that option is almost completely out of the picture due to my driveway...and in my hood im not leaving it on the street. so guys any input helps. thanks

    Call Stano Parts. They'll get you set up. I have Eibach Pro kit and KYB AGX shocks and would go with the Koni's next time around.

    You can do what I'm doing. Find a set of used WS6 springs from a 96-97 WS6 car. It'll stiffen up the ride a little and only lower it .5". A set of Bilstein heavyduty shocks to replace the current ones. About $350 depending on where you get them. The squeeking might be coming from your swaybar endlinks. I replaced all my endlinks with polyurethane ones from autozone [made by energy suspension] and it cured my rear suspension squeeks when going over speed bumps.

    While you're under there taking care of the endlinks, you might want to swap in a 32mm frontsway bar. It's the stock bar that came on the WS6/Firehawk and Camaro SS models. It's only $30 new from ebay and your dealer. You can also supplement that swaybar with some polyurethane bushings from autozone, same company.

    Hope this helps some.

    Polyurathane, and Konis. That's what I'd do (am dong). That, or get a different driveway
    As for the springs, I don't know. I think you can get Hotchsis to be close to whatever you need.

    well i just won some coils off of a 02 WS6 with only 2000 miles on them and for a unheard of price he might as well have given them to me (except for shipping). anyways so once those come in i plan on putting those on and im still undecided exactly on what shocks to get.
