    Whoo Whoo, it worked!

    Anyways, I got about 1 1/4 inch drop all the way around. I have a bunch of pics I was gonna post but couldnt figure out a way around the 1000 kb limit.

    The car handles much better now (more stable and firmly planted) and it drives much better on the highway (no more wandering)! It was alot of dough but well worth it in my opinion.

    Yea, the car has better habits all the way around, I am very pleased with the results. The setup is firm but not jarring, looks, handles and rides much better. Plus you can dial in the shocks to change the ride and handling. Sam was great to deal with, I also asked about some other stuff about the car and he shot me straight about them too.

    Hello, I got the 4th gens for $840. I also got Sams springs and the Umi adjustable panhard bar. I think you will be pleased!! Post up some pics and opinions when you get them on. Also make sure you call Sam and he will help you with shock settings and get his recommendations for your alignment.

    Danger731, Thanks, I am very happy with the 1 1/4 drop the springs gave me and the difference in the way the car drives and handles now.

    I just ordered the exact same thing from Sam for my 99 T/A. I went with the koni 4/3 shocks because Sam recommended them because of the amount of rubber I have on the rear (315's).

    I can't wait to get them. I'll post some pics when I get them installed.

    Nice car tnhillbilly, that drop is exactly what I'm going for. The big gap between the tires and the wheel wells is tooooo big.

    Beautiful car tnhillbilly (RED is the fastest color!) - looks great with the drop.

    What is your wheel/tire combo (looks like T/Thrusts?? Crager's??)

    After my suspension upgrade (via Sam of course) I am going for wheels/tires next.

    Thanks for sharing the pics.
