    Where to buy best springs?

    I want to lower my 2002 Escalade when I get my new rims in with a 2/3 drop. Which are the best springs for a comfortable ride and where can I find them? Are Billet springs any good and if so where can i find them?

    Dude, I think the reason you can't find them is that the Escalade has torsion bars on the front and the only thing required is a socket wrench and a breakover bar to lower to any level. SEE front susp drop thread

    Do the 2000 Escalade's have the front torsion bar too?? Would be nice just to have to buy the rear springs

    yes 2000's have just front torsion bars as well... you dont buy rear springs, you buy what is called a shackle for the rear, it raises the rear spring 1-3 inches depending on which one you buy, the whole job takes about 1-2 hours front and rear

    Thanks DUDE. but I keep reading about Billet springs and Ground force. Which is the best brand to buy? Where can you get a breakover bar?

    Re: Where to buy best springs?

    Look around for some of the other discussions on this topic. Basically, Ground Fource, makes a kit for around $400. McGaughy's makes 3 kits with middle one (my choice as the best 2"/3" drop) for $385 and uses a patented drop spindle for the front end lowering instead of torsion keys.

    My opinion is McGaughy's design is better engineering. Hope this helps.
