    Spring Help

    I need help on springs for my car. This is a street/strip car. Mainly street.

    Heres what I'm rolling:
    2000 SS Camaro
    True dual X pipe
    Pacesetter LT Headers

    Waiting to go on:
    Koni Sport Shocks F/R
    BMR Panhard
    BMR LCAs

    The exhaust hangs low and I live in the mountain state. I must keep my rear end at the stock height because of the exhaust. I would like to lower the front end by an 1" to 1.25" at most. Next month I will be going to 18" wheels on the car incase that factors in. I would very much appreciate any advice.

    I should add that I know about Strano springs but is it possible to only get front Strano springs and keep the back as stock? I need some serious help here because as u can tell I'm not a spring expert at all!!! Thanks again.

    If you're getting Koni SA's there's a lower perch setting, you can it to use to lower the front about 3/4" & keep the stock springs if that's an option. Also you can remove the rear isolator spring mount and do the hose mod for another 3/4" drop.

    Far as breaking up a set of Strano springs only Sam can answer that ?

    These are tried and true mods for guys looking for a drop but still need ground clearance.
    The stock springs are pretty good the weak link is the stock decarbon shocks.
    If the car is still a little loose for your liking a set of sub frame connectors and/or sway bars will tighten it up nicely.

    Thanks for the info. Yeah I'm just going to keep my stock springs then. I just wasnt sure if it was a good idea to stay with the stockers or get aftermarket. I have sfc's and stb. Thanks again, I just needed a little help. Like I said, I know nothing about springs.

    You also could go with a set of Hotchkis front lowering springs.
