im looking to lower my car. but i was thinking of only lowering the front and leaving the rear because we all know how the GTP sags on a good launch.

so in a sense this is a 2 part question who has lowering springs for sale

and is it wise to only lower the front and not the rear(i think itd look pretty sick as well)

dont lower just the front.... i did that with my ssc springs at 1st with pogo eliminator... pshh i was bouncing like a damn kangaroo. im on stock struts so im not sure if that will make a huge difference. so you might as well just get them all around and toss some GTO spring blockers in back to help out a little.

I just lowered the front of my car with SSC springs and sold the rear SSC springs. I bought the antipogo washers, put new struts all the way around, nothing fancy just autozone struts. My car rides close to stock. Nothing rough, hardly any bouncing unlike my old Regal with Eighbach springs that thing bounced like a dawm honda I have a perfect drop. My car is even from front to back.

You will need new struts and probably new strut mounts. You can always try the fronts and then do the backs.

I got a set of Intrigue Springs, 2 front monroe shocks, and 2 back kyb GR2's all with like 10-15K on them. They were taken off the car today as I went back to stock springs. Looking for $100 on the springs, and make me a offer on the shocks.

Are the SLP springs for the newer GP's, since your sig says 04 GTP..does that mean they'd fit on my 05 base GP??? If so interested party here.....
