    Lowering a 01 STS

    Hi all,

    What is the best route to take to lower the 01 sts 1-1.5" around, and at the same time I don't want to sacrifice ride quality.

    Thanks!

    Eibach makes spring kits for some of these cars that lower about an inch. They are well engineered for a mild upgrade having a progressive rate that adds about 15% or more stiffness after about 1 1/2" of strut travel. They also require additional geometry changes to the alignment & other suspension components will be effected. Thats about as easy as it gets if they make a kit for your model year.

    I actually checked the Eibach site already and they only have springs available for the 98-99 STS...

    Did you ever get your STS lowered. I'd like to lower mine 1.5" as well.

    It didn't work and he hasn't been in this thread in 2.5 years. See my reply to your other thread up in Seville.

    For starters on the lowering attempt for a 2001 STS: "Don't".
