Springs are Intrax front and Sportline rear. Shocks are Stagg shocks off ebay. Perfect ride height IMO.

Looks great. And they handle so much better that low. I had eibach sport springs on my '98. Problem was, I drug everything with the longtubes and spohn torque arm and relocation mount.

I'll have to get some. As far as the springs I have no idea other than the Intraxs are advertised at 2 inches and the Sportlines are 1.8"

Thank you. I really didn't think much of them, they were on my 96. The drop completely changed my opinion on them though

Overall I like it but it looks a tad to low in the front, IMO.

Did you get the alignment done? I would imagine that you will need to elongate the holes for more camber adjust or go with some aftermarket adjustable control arms.

Looks bad ass but I cringe as it is when driving in an unfamiliar area lol, almost got stuck a few times and I am not even close to being that low.

Car looks great, nice job. Can you post some more pics of the rear of the car? Mine's in the shop for paint and I still haven't decided on the 6LE diffuser.

I can tell you that since I just finished mine last night, if you swap motor mounts the headers will set up and the TSP stuff will tuck up good if you spend the time to tweak the fitment, if your mounts are worn the header will drop a lil more and you may have an issues on the drivers side where that cross member under your seat is, that seems to be the lowest part of my entire system, other than that the TSP's are golden, YMMV!

first crank up last nite @ 10pm

Ride quality is in the eye of the beholder. What feels good to one person doesn't mean it's desirable for another. With this set-up I doubt I would be impressed or comfortable behind the wheel.

I like th gray wheels, I would've hated it with black rims, no contrast.

Gettin ready to do my Ws6 vert soon but went with c6 Z06 DDs 18s. I did the C5 z06 brakes already so brake wont look small...

For ride hight, for now I'll be stock I hate having to close my eyes and pray on my30th...

I have my Z-28 'vert 6-spd lowered 2" on Eibach springs, w/Bilstein shocks (made for the SS). I have literally every suspension bolt-on.
On 17" SS wheels w/ 275's all around, it drags speed bumps, but when I put the 20" wheels on it w/255's, it looks great, and rides at stock height again. The downfall is, w/ 2x 12" subs, and at least 1 passenger, it sits on the rear bumpstops.
I haven't fixed it yet, but if its a daily driver,
I would change the rear bumpstops,
Or only lower it an inch.
Definitely handles better. I recommend changing to polyuerathane wherever u can

The car just looks bad ass. Stance is just right and the combo with the wheels set it off. I do agree with alot of the comments driving it daily is a hassle. My 01 SS was lowered on Sportlines and that thing would hit everything and got tired of it. If its a weekend driver no biggie. Either way nice ride OP

Thank you for the comments. I had a vision for this car the second I saw it for sale, and luckily before it was wrecked I was able to accomplish it and share it. And its not really a hassle, at least around here it wasnt

You need to blackout that third brake light, and the side front bumper lights. I think that will finish off the look very well.
