Don't waste your money regardless...

I have a set of H&R lowering springs that I tried to put into my 86 T/C. They were too short! The axle rested on the bumpstops and you could still wiggle the springs. Tossed them on the shelf and went with what I have today.

Chuck, how's those motormounts coming along. Don't need them back yet as I'm going to do a SN95 dash swap now that I'm done with the sub-frame connectors.

While it might not answer your question, coilsprings.com can turn you a spring at whatever load rating and height you want. I would consider the $100/pair ($200 total) fairly cheap. I'm at 1.5" drop, 20% stiffer than stock specs. There was some debate with them about my driver side *perceived* sag. But after measuring in many places (rocker panel, fender lip, subframe etc) everything checks out equal. Dunno why it LOOKS like it's leaning (it did on the stock springs also), the measurements prove otherwise. The only thing I'd do differently is get the rears 5% stiffer than the fronts and also 1/4" to 1/2" taller than the fronts to account for extra crap like a sub and tools in the trunk. Would also help when loaded with large rear passengers.

"large rear passengers", does that mean they are big in the butt?
