B&G Lowering Springs

Hey so I found a complete set of B&G lowering springs new for 180 bucks. Is that a good deal? Could I still use my Fe1 shocks and struts with these springs?

Ya really want the fe5 shocks and struts but at 311 bucks from CED its kinda pricey. Do you know anywhere else that sells the Fe5 suspension for cheaper?

Rock auto or look for part numbers on google. You need to realize that if you want to play and do it right, you're gonna pay a little bit. $500 for complete shocks/struts/springs is very reasonable

Ya haha Im just cheap. But I gotta get my brakes and stuff done first but my car has 120000 miles on her and I doubt that the previous owner replaced the shocks and struts since the car was bought.

Brakes are cheap. If the suspension was never replaced, then this is a good opportunity to do it

Ya looks like Rock Auto is cheaper. with shipping it comes out to 280 bucks. So all in looking at 460 for brand new suspension. Thats actually not bad. Might of found what Im gonna get next paycheck. Plus then I can install my Cobalt SS High rise spoiler and it wont look tacky because right now the car sits waay too high in the rear and with the spoiler it looks dumb.

Might actually do that. Cant wait till I have the spare money to do these mods and show off my car on here once its complete. When I get the springs should I put a lot of stuff in my trunk so that the back springs can settle lower?

No I don't think you need to do that. But it will just make the back sit lower because of the added weight.
