    And Strano's also sells UMI's products too. Bear that in mind when you go to order. I'm also and LS1.com site sponsor.

    As for the SFC's. Mild steel are the most sensible choice. Some folks want to save every ounce, but it also costs a lot more money. $100 to save 4 pounds on a 3500 pound street car just isn't the best use of resources IMHO.

    SFC's can be found here: http://www.stranoparts.com/searchbym...D=22&ModelID=7

    There isn't really a comparison. I don't have problems with varying heights like Eibach's do. My springs weigh on the order of about 14 less per set, and my springs are actually about handling (build to my specs).

    Not too many on this site have them, but some do. But there are a lot of folks on other forums that have them and love them.

    Basically I built them with handling in mind, and I can back up the claims. And they are so popular we can't keep them in stock. I was out since December. Had 34 backordered and when the shipment arrived 2 days ago, I sold a lot more. I'm down to less than 35 set now from what I can find. So if you are leaning this way, act fast because when they're gone we won't have more for about 3-4 months.

    I do also sell Eibach... and Hotchkis. And H&R. And a few other off brands. I have options, I build my springs to be better than those, IMHO.

    UMI 3 pt. SFC's

    For what it is worth, I just installed a set UMI 3-pt. SFC's and they are Awesome. Excellent quality, fit really well and tight up against the body. I spoke to UMI several times about what to get for my car. They spent significant time finding out what my needs for my car are and we discussed different options. UMI has given me excellent customer service. Take Care.
