Not new, but "stock" front SS springs with 1 coil cut off. It was about a 4 inch drop for my 9C1. I put about 3k miles on them since the chop, so that's a little bit over 80k total. Painted red btw. To get an idea of what I call the perfect stance, take a look at my "project endless" thread. Not the best ride with my factory shot Gabriel shocks tho. I only have one out now, but the other one is coming out this week when I get around to it. Too many projects blah blah blah.

Pretty impossible for me to be mistaken. They came from a member, who got them out of another members SS a few years ago. I don't remember what year they came from, but early 94 SS builds seem to have taller springs in the front giving it an ugly as hell backwards rake. Just ask Jim. We both are running Camaro Z28 springs up front now (well, one side of mine so far). If you put these "chopped" springs in your SS, it will have the same drop as my 9C1. Did you look at my build thread? I did have the rear SS springs in, but they sat too high up. I swapped them out for suspension techniques lowered rears. Now its a bit more level front to back. These aren't that great for a DD. Tho as I stated, my shocks were bad. Not to mention the body would be on the frame sans stock rubber bump stops. Made the car handle excellent being so low.

How much of a drop would you think they'll give the wagon? The same as your sedan or less?

No clue man. Google it, wait for another wagon person to chime in, or take a chance. I don't see why end results would differ.
