What's up guys. I found a set of lower springs for the Seville. This guy is selling for $150.00 All he did was open the box to take the pics. Didn't get a chance to put them in his car. Is this a good deal?? Aren't they like $250 retail?? Also, can anyone tell me how these would affect my ride?? I know they'll be stiffer but is it going to be terribly noticable. Thanks
i have a 93 sts w/ 245/45 17's, this is a good price. I only used the frnt springs, and the rear stock springs are the right height to match the front eibachs. the ride is awesome and the look is even better. make sure the fr springs have the plastic tubing at the top of the coils!
If you do use them in the rear, you might have to adjust the placememnt of the ride height sensors. I've seen a few that had the Eibach spring on them, and the rear ends sat way to high up. This is because the car always thought it was riding too low, and would send more air to the rear shocks. If you move the sensors further up a little (depepnding on the amount of drop), it should counteract this, and result in a level rear end. Other than that small issue, I haven't heard of any real problems with doing it. There was somebody over at caddyinfo that posted a story about using them on their car 2 or 3 years ago. They said that the ridew was sort of messed up, but that's the only reference to any problem I have. If they do end up causing an issue, you can always put the old springs back on too. If you go through with it, let us know how it turns out. I was considereing the Eibach springs, but wasn't sue of it myself. If your looking for more handling, you might also try and see if you can find the stabilizer bars used on the fleet vehicles. I hear they are alot thicker and stiffer.
