i think im getting tired of nailing my car on every speed bump.

you guys know how much stock springs would be? or where I should look?

is this something I can do myself, or how much should it be to have them swapped out.

Also the suspen struts were "performance" & installed w/ the lowered springs. any ideas if they will work ok with stock?

THANK u MUCH

a lot of people actually go this route (stock springs/lowering strut)....you'll notice a big difference in comfort besides ride height. you just need your basic hand tools, jack and spring compressors (rent them at autozone or schmucks). and yes I could help you....but you'll have to give your your front springs ;)

I'll help if I get free [shizzle]! Do you need compressors for the 2nd gen? I did mine fine without them.....
it's helpful most of the time....a friend of mine tried doing springs on a Z car with out....and the spring ended up stuck in the ceiling of his garage somehow..hahah

Yeah, I think it just depends on the car. Thats why I was asking though, cause with 1st gens you don't and there are similarities between 1st and 2nd gen suspension.

2 Bills? Geez...maybe I can find someone whose looking for lowered ones to swap. But then I would have to bribe you guys with other stuff....like brownies?

Or maybe some tix to a Britney Spearsh conshert *stan's sister's voice*.
