Anyone here use Intrax lowering springs?
http://www.summitracing.com/parts/INT-25-1-056/

They claim these retain OE ride quality, and are basically lowering for cosmetic purpose (although lower center of gravity should inherently help handling, with the trade off of less suspension travel), which I would like. If anything I'd like mine to ride "softer" since the caddy is my comfy cruiser (have a 73 porsche 911 for backroad carving). Just wondering if anyone has these and their experience. Never heard of Intrax before

My Mustang is lowered 2" with Intrax Springs and it rides VERY firm. Keeping in mind, of course, that it is a Mustang! Your car will ride firmer if you lower it. I have dropped half a dozen cars and they all rode firmer; No way around it.

Springs could certainly be made that would allow a soft ride and lower height.. the (my) problem is that it seems the consensus is people who want to lower their car also want to make it "handle" better so the spring rate is increased. The other issue of course is that with less suspension travel a higher spring rate will help resist bottoming out, so it is a tricky issue.

ive decided that im not going to get any springs, possibly D3 later, but the intrax springs lower it a little too much for me. Also, its the same lower front and back so the back will still be higher than the front
