PostSubject: Wagon lowering springs??   Fri Feb 11, 2011 12:47 am

Looking to lower then wagon about 2.5" front and back. Would like a little bit of rake to it, and decent ride. I don't want to cut springs, I'd like to just buy new. Hoping to spend $250.00 or less on the springs.. What's my best option? Thanks guys..

Btw i was considering Canuck Motorsports kit.. 190shipped.. But I've never heard of them before..

pothole?


On a serious note, I have nothing good to contribute, just trying to help keep it on top. Although perhaps pothole performance would be something to consider...

When researching different springs for my wagon, I found that RM springs rake the car a bit higher in the back than Caprice springs. Maybe go that route and use SS springs in the front?

Haven't we done this already? Wink

I like my Hotchkis/Vogtlands. Smile

But to get a rake with a wagon, you will probably have to trim the fronts a bit.

Nah, I have the Hotchkis in the SS and the Vogts in the wagon. But I thought that they were both made by the same company. I read that somewhere on teh interwebs. Smile





I still have the rear air suspension though, so it has a little rake. It'd come down another inch or so in the back without it.
