That actually looks real good! I like that its not too raked up in the rear. I think that there is def. a difference between 1.2 and 1.25 inch drops. Atleast to me it does.

The 1.25" springs really put the car at a great ride height.

Those looks like Vogtland spring to me, only with different spring rate, I guess. I've Vogtland spring and love them, even some sponsor said their spring rate was too stiff and progressive rating. Google "Vogtland" yourself for more info.

Remember, in most of the cases, we're not only buying the product itself but also some other stuff, ie customer service. People should keep that in mind and decided who to buy from.

Good pics! Thanks for the info. Since I'm pretty new to all this stuff, can anyone tell me what height drop from stock would still be decent for TSP true duals? Planning to go with the duals and don't want to be insanely close to the ground.

How hard are these to install yourself? Anyone know roughly what it would cost to have a shop install them? Something else that occured to me also.. does anyone run into more little dings or chips in front bumper paint due to having a lowered car? Mine is pretty clean and I'm debating lowering at all. Love the stance after being lowered though. Just kind of torn I guess.

from what I hear, true duals are a major pain in the ***, take alot of modifications, and hinder you lowering ability alot.
I think I paid around $650 to have my whole suspension installed. Thats not just springs.
Most good shops charge between $75 and $95 hour.
As far as more chips and dings...no. The only thing you have to worry about is high speed bumps and steep driveways which I go at an angle on.

I'm very happy with my springs I got from BMR. I don't care if they are similar to others, they are good quality and I got them FAST. Which was a key factor as I needed new springs asap.

Here's a few pics of mine.







A few more are here.

The pictures I have seen seem to tell two stories.

The ride height of the original silver WS6 is great and the picture of the Red WS6 has a good ride height also.

The two black trans ams seem to be a lot lower....

Very nice, i've been looking for a spring with that kind of drop and still a factory like ride, there will be the springs I buy BMR.

He's a tip for you, the GM wbody cars have four options for springs, three of the four ride like garbage and the fourth is still very hard. I have SSC's on my wbody Regal, drop is awesome (1.75") but the ride is garbage. Make some springs for us with these same characteristics.....please

I'm sending you a PM on that idea

I see what your saying. It lookis like the wheels are higher up in the wheel well than the red car. Im not sure why. I have a 1.25in drop. Maby it has to do with rim size. But I can't understand why. My rims are 17in.

Is an adjustable PHB required with these lowering springs?

Are the LCA relocation brackets required with these lowering springs?

I currently have bilstein shocks with 20,000 miles on them, will they be able to hold up with these lowered springs?

LCA relocation and adjustable on car panhard bar are recommended for lowering. I went with Konis.
