does anyone make a reasonably priced adjustable coil over kit for 98+ F Bods?

You can get ground control set up at the WS6store---> 380.00 I think
You have to know the rates you want. 300 lb/in is stock. I have 400 ib/in with a 3/4 in drop. You should get new shocks to go with. Koni work well.

thanks, are they hard to install? What spring rate should I get? I want my car to sit low, without riding terribly rough.

I have the GC kit on my car. I'm quite happy with it. I have Koni SA's too which I think make it more firm than my springs. My fronts are 500# and the rears are 150# straight rate springs. Mine is set up for autocross not so much street, but Sam could certainly help you selected the best for you.
I got my springs and GC kit from Sam Strano >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
I change my rear ride height every time I go to the drag strip to help clearance my 27" tires, then lower it to drive on the street.

Hard to install is relative. It was not hard for me, but I have heard that only a someone who who is a install god can do it. The lower u go the more rate u need. If you go with more than stock rate you should get konis to dampen the springs. Most shock do not work well with high rate springs.

Could Strano springs be tossed on GC coilover perches, in the event that I would possibly want to raise the height slightly? :)
