    That looks amazing, good work!
    I feel like ordering eibachs too lol, how's the ride on those springs?

    I actually got them off of eBay used a few years ago for $100, I think?. No box or info. I'll try to peek under and see if there's a number on them, I feel like I remember seeing one the last time they were out, I know they have Eibach on them. But come to think of it, for all I really know they could be for a Honda Accord! Never know with eBay. I do like the ride though, stiff, but the car never bottoms out, and it corners tight.

    I'm looking at moog 7268 springs (made for a dodge van but apparently work quite well and drop right in for the impala ss/ caprice) for the front and running the 120k 9c1 springs (from a fire chiefs car) I have in the back....should give a bit of a rake

    Just wondering....when I replace the front springs, should I replace the bumpstops as well? If so, should I just put back stock spec ones or are there any that are better than stock?

    Re: lowering advice on my 86 brougham?

    hi cadillac kevin

    Im working on my 80 coupe deville as well. have all the parts in my basement waiting to get installed after I paint the car in the spring. I have the stock impala springs and kyb gas adjust shocks all around. I also plan on installing the front and rear 9c1 sway bars to add some tightness to the handling.

    if u are still trying to figure it out in a couple of months...I will give u an update then on the ride and handling quality.
