    what springs? (stock hieght)

    first off all let me give you some info.

    i have a 99 rs v6 and im going to be going to ranken tech next year and if you know anything about st. louis its not the best place to break down at . so my parents are forcing me to fix the problems my var has or get rid of it and get a ford ranger(tough choice ). potholes are going to be a problem along with mild snow.

    so my question is- i need new shocks and im prety sure the car is lowered due to wheel clearence and the shocks look stock.(will check springs and shocks when i get a chance(probly wont be till thursday) now i want to return the car to stock ride hieght(i am having problems with my body kit and speed bumps i dont want to know what some potholes will do). i ve been lookin at blisten shocks but are there any aftermarket shocks that keep the stock ride hieght?

    im just trying to do this right and sudgestions whould be apreciated

    oh and heres my to do list:
    -replace booth window motors, passener is slow drivers doesnt work
    -exauhst (cat back, headers if i can get a deal) mufflers rotted away
    -suspension recoupe
    -all season tires on the rear for now(i got the car with barley any tread (1/16") and ive made it last almost a year, barley)
    -an lsd if i can get the money togeather

    For one thing, if you have a body kit on your car and you raise it back to stock height, it will look horrible. It all depends on how much money you have to spend on the car. I would suggest getting some adjustable Koni springs if you can afford them. They will run you anywhere from 700-up.

    If it's the stock body kit I think it should look good at stock height. The Koni's are slick. If you need help with suspension I say give Strano Parts a call 800-729-1831 . They are great and really know F-body's.

    I have a '99 Z28 and I retain the stock ride height for mainly reasons is that if I lowered my car, I can't get in/out my driveway without scraping the front (sometimes it scraps the air dam)

    I have Blistiens HD shocks on all 4 and 1LE springs in the front (360 lbs/in)

    Blisten shocks are good, but beware there are two different types.

    The SLP Blistens have a higher bump rebound but lower compression rebound (revalved).

    The Blistens HD have a higher rebound than the SLP and works well with stock ride height. It can be revalved by Blistens for an additional cost to your specifications.
