    Needing New Springs for the T/A

    I have new upper and lower A-Arms(is that what they are called)? and also new shocks. I was planning on using my old springs as although they have a little rust they would clean up and take paint okay.

    However my old spring is unusable.

    So needing to buy new springs too. May as well get a whole set, they are around $250 for a set.

    My current ones are Eibach I don't have to stick to the same make. Its lowered around 1.25", so similar would be fine.
    Dave recommends BMR or Sam Stranos springs, in this thread What have you done to your vehicle today?

    BMR are available from my usual place. 93-02 Fbody BMR Lowering Springs | WS6store.com Reading the text they do sounds good.

    I'm possibly being sent to the states at the end of May. I'll see if I can get these shipped to the hotel. At least the weather should be warmer, so means less space required for clothing in the luggage, more room for parts.

    I think you’re Eibachs are a lower drop than that.
    Here is my old TA running on BMR’s. Stranos are about the same drop and spring rates.

    Ah yes, my current ones are 1.7" drop Front, 1.8" drop Rear, I think 1.25" would be better, just slightly higher. I went too low. At least I have invested in a low profile jack to get under lowered cars. With some speed humps I may not scrape on being just that little higher.

    I don’t believe you would regret either BMR’s or Strano’s. Strano is well known for late model f-body handling and the BMR’s are basically a copy of his spec.

    BMR has no stock, now I'm here. I'm going to have to source Strano springs.

    WS6Store don't list Strano, I'd prefer to buy from Ws6Store, is there anything as good on this list?
