SSC Vs SS/TC Springs

So, trying to decide on my springs, for the future.

I know the SS/TC springs handle incredibly well, but they don't drop the car much.

I've come across the SSC springs, and it seems that provide about an inch and a half drop, but are developed for handling as well?

My question is, do the SSC springs compare, handling-wise to the SS/TC springs?

He has probably voted that out of his decisions.

Yeah, too much of a drop. Don't want to deal with it being lowered that much, then having it snow.

I've always heard of Sport-Lines sagging, too. Or at least they have that issue on other cars.

SSC springs rates are very close to the SS/SC's spring rates.

If you're looking for handling, get the SS/TC stuff. and they'll lower your car by 10mm.

the back is lower than the front because the back of your car is higher to begin with. they level the car, so the rear has further to go.

Ahh, this is what I was looking for...

10mm isn't really that much, so - are the SSCs just barely worse handling wise than the SS/TCs?

Cause I wouldn't mind more of a drop for a small sacrifice in handling.
