Those look pretty slick.  I just cut my coils, I would like to go lower but my side pipes bottom out over big speed bumps as it is.Mad

What springs do you have?

I was thinking about going with a heavy duty replacement from a locate autoparts dealer.

I just want to make sure that it sites right.

I have spindles but have yet to put them on, I installed a set of Belltech spings in May.

Careful.  Sometimes telling them "I want the heavy-duty springs" gets you the big block springs instead, and then your car will ride like a 4x4 like mine used to.

Whats the purpose of drop spindles? Why not just go with lowering spings?

Ease of installation.  Also it keeps the suspensions geometry intact.

Gotcha, thanks! Just wondering if I should have gotten these instead of lowering springs.

Drop spindles are more expensive than springs -- that's the trade off.

I like 50$ off by buying them from CPP's ebay store. If you buy them from them directly they are a lot higher.

Is there any way to verify what the difference is for springs.

I definitely don't want it to sit higher!
