I believe the Caprice springs are 1" shorter then the stock brougham so getting some that would drop a caprice 2" would probably drop yours 3". What are your plans for the car? Aftermarket rims? It definitely wont look good dropped on stock rims. I didnt think DJM was an off brand but I dont really know.

thanks for the info! im pretty sure im gunna buy some st springs with bilsteins from shox.com.. as far as plans go:
-coils and shocks
-7"lcd deck
-a decent sub setup
-35% tint
-rims(not sure of what though, impala ss?) racing disc covers until i decide
-oh and i need to replace one of the rear body fillers

trying to be tasteful as much as i can... what should i do?

Rims are gonna be the hardest thing in the world to find for it, I found some black Impala rims so I'm gonna see how they look when I get mine out of storage. If they look like crap, I'll have to sell them. I've had all types of subs in my car and I think 15s sound the best, they just take up your whole trunk. If you get a TV deck, you'll have to spend some money. Brands like Dual and Jenson wont last and are not built good, no features and outdated designs.

I'm more a fan of 10" or 8" subs, give you a lot more midbass.

As far as that "Light Antelope Metallic" Cadillac, that thing is farking mint for $750. Around here $750 will buy you a car that doesn't run, or something that runs horribly and is beat to absolute shit.
