Wow it's a great change it has even less nosedive almost NONE now and it raised the car about 1" on each side maybe more 1 1/2" maybe.

There is also a lot less sway on corners and the ride is smoother overall.

I bought them from napa for $120 worth every penny I should've done this sooner man old coil springs really do give a rougher ride.

I would recommend this as a tune-up for any 10 year old vehicle.

Are they stock, or SS springs?

Stock I wanted the stock height I don't like scraping the bottom of my car etc. and I think that if I lowered it then the car's 22's would probably rub on turns etc.

all 4 of my springs are stock replaced the 2 rear a couple months back and the front 2 yesterday.

Been meaning to replace mine. Looking into some resto-mod springs from Eaton Spring (http://www.eatonsprings.com) . Improve handling a tad, and i need to do balljoints anyway, might as well when i'm down there.

Thanks for the compliments! Unfortunately, yes, I did have a Grand Am as a hood ornament the other day, but the other party who was at fault has insurance. http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=36686
