    upgrading from bilstein to 1LE

    ok I have a bilstein ultra performance suspension on my 02 firehawk and i want to go to a 1LE suspension.. I fount a list to compare the 2 factory options:

    BILSTEIN ULTRA PERFORMANCE SUSPENSION SYSTEM

    35mm front stabilizer bar
    21mm rear stabilizer bar
    Reinforced stabilizer bar brackets and special end-links
    Bilstein shocks, recalibrated to SLP specs.
    Progressive-rate front springs 223 to 448 lb.-per-inch
    Progressive-rate rear springs 97 to 136 lb.-per-inch
    Rear trailing arms with 1LE bushings
    1LE panhard bar
    Option Price: $999


    1LE SUSPENSION SYSTEM

    35mm front stabilizer bar
    21mm rear stabilizer bar
    Reinforced stabilizer bar brackets and special end-links
    Double-adjustable Koni shocks
    Linear-rate front springs: 360 lb.-per-inch

    Front lower control arms with higher durometer bushings

    can anyone tell me where I can find the lower control arms and the springs from the 1LE suspension? I looked on slp but couldnt find them.

    I bought 1LE bushing from Sam Strano and just popped out the stock ones in the LCA and put the new ones in. 1 hour of work. stranoparts.com

    For the springs, Sam may be able to get them, I've seen them up for sale on LS1Tech too sometimes.
