    Lowering suspension

    Hey everyone so how would I go about lowering the suspension on 91 deville I like the look and I read about better handling through lowering the center of gravity. I seen some lowering springs and other things but I don't want to screw up the cadillac ride, is this possible? What should I be looking for?

    but I don't want to screw up the cadillac ride,

    NO - it's an EITHER/OR

    lower car = shorter springs

    shorter springs = stiffer springs

    stiffer springs = harsher ride

    If you got the jack maybe an air ride system.

    NO - you have regular coil spring suspension on all 4 corners -

    the rear shocks incorporate air bladders - part of the Electronic Level Control -

    If you really want to improve handling, you could look into springs and struts for a '92 Deville Touring Sedan (pre Concours and DTS). It's nothing drastic, and no difference in ride height, but it's something to do if you wanted a little stiffer ride and/or just want something different.
