    Sport Shocks/springs w/ Rims

    i'm looking to upgrade my shocks and springs because my car is at 60k and idk gives me a reason to do it lol... always thought my car was high up looking


    anyway down the road i want c6 z06 chrome 18" rims (or maybe 17")with 275 tires all around so i can rotate them.... was wondering if anyone had this combination on their car and has any insight on recommending companies with good products... looking to spend around $600 in parts for the shocks/springs and around maybe $600-$900 for rims...?(doesnt have to be genuine GM corvette rims)

    If i had to recommend a set of springs i would tell you these
    http://www.stranoparts.com/partdetai...=113&ModelID=7
    Never heard anyone complain about their stranos

    Couldn't tell you much about the shocks
    From what i've heard eibachs are nice, but ride pretty rough and tend to sag a little in the rear (again just what i've heard)
    Bilstein shocks may be better for your budget.

    If i were you i would call strano
    Give your driving style/ride height preference, and your budget
    Best advice you could probably get
