Got New Springs in

I felt cheap on buying a no name brand, but was looking at the spring rate and how much of a drop it changes from OEM. I bought a set of TuningPros lowering springs from Amazon for $98 + free shipping ground rate.

I am adding the FE5 struts with Moog Endlinks and KYB Strut mounts. The springs are set to lower the vehicle 1.5" Front and 1.6" rear. They also claimed it works with aftermarket/OEM struts. Gonna pop these bad springs in my vehicle by End of Month for open shop day, then put the vehicle on a Hunter Alignment machine after a few days to let the springs settle in. Crossing Fingers on how it will handle/look.

I'd never go cheapy on brakes or suspension...

Not my car though so good luck.

WBody guys had pretty crap luck with the Option Racing/DNA EBay springs that were like a hundred bucks. Didn't lower the car much either.

True bluegtp, I would normally go with Eibach or H&R, but the gov loves me so much on VA and disability benefits, they didn't want to pay me. So hopefully the democrats and republicans can sit down and talk for once and stop acting like children. I wish the supreme justice court would fire every single one of them without pay. See how it feels :P

Back on springs. I will post some pics when Halloween is near, cause that's when we have open shop for us to do whatever we want on our cars (light work that is) and they have a nice spring compressor
