    Re: struts

    I would just get some FE4 springs from one of the V guys or FE3 springs.
    Since the V doesn't have MRC either you could take the shocks from the V as well.
    No idea about any aftermarket applications for a stiffer ride.

    Re: struts

    Might be worthwhile to make sure the V shocks aren't the same as what you already have.
    GM may have only done a spring swap and the other minor V suspension tweaks and used the same shocks in both.
    I also assume you have a RWD STS.

    I thought only D3 made lowering springs and that they were discontinued ...
