    suspension for the 97'??

    looking at eibach sportline springs, possibly bilstien shocks??? not too up with the F Body suspension game, any recommendations?? the car will be used for summer fun and hit the track once in a while, i wanna go pretty low but i will also be running 18x10.5's in the rear 17x9.5's in front (getting the rims in november). if you guys could recommend some somewhat budget friendly setups it will be awesome!!!! i dont plan on purchasing the parts till january.. thanks - Levi

    Slp Bilsteins(around $410), and a set of Vogtland (progressive) lowering springs(about $180).
    The Eibachs spring tend to sag in the rear and lower noticeably more then stated, so with the Sportlines you're basically riding on the bump stops, plus the spring rates for the LT1 Sportlines are way to low. If you're still set on getting the Sportline springs then at least get the LS1 Sportline springs since the spring rates are a lot better for the amount of drop they offer.

    FYI, Vogtland is also the same company that makes the Strano's lowering springs.
