    Fast Lane,
    With the springs, some bushing and washers are included with the springs as
    a kit. The only thing they will do is keep the shocks from returning the car to
    a load leveling ride as they are designed to do with out the spacers.
    The shocks have a full range of motion, not to worry about that issue.
    I found them to be as advertised. D3 seems to be the omly distributor of
    these items. Good luck with your project.

    -2 Degrees of camber means you will be going through a set of tires every year. I'd hardly call that acceptable.

    Russell, thanks for your response .. i might get the springs in a month or two ..before the weather gets better ..as i haven't heard anyone facing issues with shocks ..and as far as alignment goes ...as i am running stock wheels so i might not face that issue either

    I called D3 to order lowering springs for my STS-V. I was posed the question "which suspension do you have?" I thought only one non-magnetic suspension was offered on the STS-V?

    D3 is selling these springs with the kit for around 350. or 360 best offer on
    ebay under "Cadillac D3" So you can get them for a lot less than there catolog
    price. They seem to be dumping parts lett and right, Why I don't know.
    One of the guy's on this forum purchased them and is waiting, Got his tracking
    # the next day in an email. Shipping is free. I am not a spokeman for them.
    I am only posting information. Do what think is right.

    I bought a set on ebay from D3 the 18th and received shipping notification that evening. Springs will be in my hands according to UPS Tues next week. If all goes as scheduled (and everything is in package), I'll be leaving them positive feedback on ebay for the transaction.

    P.J.
