Hey guys! Looking to buy a set of stock SS springs, or a set of lowering springs. Going on a 96 Fleetwood. Please let me know what you have!
Thanks! -Paul

I like where this is going. Wink

Get moog 5662 in front and Eibach ss rears, or equivalent, and you'll be happy. Smile

Thanks Crovo! Those moogs are cheap too! Can I buy just the eibach rears alone? A quick google search only showed sets. Any shock suggestions? Thank you

I have a pair of ST rear springs, but you made need a spacer to raise it a half inch or so... Or run some thick isolators with them.

I run the Autozone Gabriel Ultras... Pretty decent for a cheap shock. 120 bucks or so for all 4.

Crovo, if your willing to part ways with those ST rears I'll buy them. I imagine I can buy those moogs and take 1/2 coil out of them and be fairly level? I'd like the nose a hair lower. This is temporary until I piece together an air ride setup. Car will not be a daily driver Smile

Idk if you'd want to cut a 5662 at all. My sig pic has 5662s up front and PPM AutoX springs in the rear. 245/45/17 and the same height only wider in the back.

That height looks pretty good!

I just ordered the pair of 5662's, still have to figure out the rears. Can i cut the stockers out back? Or is that not recommended? Thanks for the help so far guys

I definitely would not cut rear springs. Their configuration doesn't allow it. You could heat them up. That's about it. Maybe look for some stock rear SS springs on issf.

I've cut rear springs before with no issue. Just use a big ziptie to keep them located when you lower it to the ground. I wouldn't hesitate to run them as an "in between"... Although, it'll ride like ass, probably, with stockers.

You can have the ST's for cheap. I'm done with these cars. I need no more spares. Marshmallow is the last of the breed for me, and I like my Vogtlands.

I may be interested in your stock FW rears for the "burb experiment." Wink

Ha! I said I was done with these cars once before too.. You can have my stocks and I'll buy those st's off ya. Also, I ordered those Gabriel ultra front shocks you suggested today from autozone, 22bucks a piece. I'm sure they'll be fine at that price w/lifetime warranty!

20" American Racing/KMC Novas and sprint springs. Too low for a daily, but it is my daily haha. @ 215k now. Only thing that has ever went out on it is the starter, coolant t and restrictor after all these miles.
