Nice benefit for sure but when I am looking at a suspension upgrade for my performance car the fuel mileage is the last on my list of must haves. Any actual performance benefits with this kit? Or is that why we are talking about fuel mileage?

Vega 01-22-2010 03:19 PM

Wow, its rather cheap too =)

PQ 01-22-2010 03:30 PM

I'm ordering the springs to lawer mine an inch+ mainly for cosmetic purposes and a little handling benefit. Do these springs lower the car much?

How much?

KnightRider 01-22-2010 03:35 PM

I had lowered many of my cars before but I never heard of increasing gas mileage being one of the benefit...
I'm skeptical about their claim unless it's proven by a third party.

1" in the rear and the front to be exact.

Will these work for the LT models or is this only for SS models?

cybercoaster 01-22-2010 03:55 PM

I was looking for a new suspension mostly to lower mine 1" as well. This might be a good option. I would like to hear/see some real world examples. The claim on saving gas was because it drops an inch. If so then Pedders or Pfadt would do the same ? :iono:

SoFlaZ 01-22-2010 03:58 PM

How long should the factory shocks/struts be expected to last with just a drop from springs? I know 1 inch isnt too hard on them, but more I'd expect them to go bad with in a year or two. The reason I ask is because on cavaliers and cobalts at least, the shocks dont last for much longer than a year or two with just a spring drop.

HOLY CRAP! Thanks for the link.

How come the Eibach are so much cheaper than the Hotchkis kits?

Thats interesting, I didn't think of that scenario.

I have been checking into this system, and it appears they are out of the springs right now. Do you have them in stock and how much. PM please.

Number 3 01-22-2010 04:25 PM

I'm skeptical of the "no sacrifice in ride comfort and compliance".

These would have to be magic. Simply reducing supsension travel makes a HUGE and negative difference in ride and what does this package do? Lowers the car reducing suspension travel, making it more likely to get into the jounce bumpers if nothing else.............unless of course the springs are stiffer, which also impacts ride negatively. Or if the shock damping was increased, which would negatively impact ride but the package doesn't appear to have shocks.

And as for FE??? I can tell you lowering a car improves FE. And GM adjusts this to maximize FE. But there are reasons why your Camaro isn't an inch lower stock.

But I would also go so far as to say the wouldn't claim it if they didn't at least think they could back it up.

So as I said, skeptical. But interested enough to talk with my FE experts on Monday morning.

pacecar 01-22-2010 04:48 PM

silly ad, interesteing concept, must apply to pfadt and pedders too (more so for bigger drop)

truth411 01-22-2010 04:53 PM

Something does not add up, How does droping your car 1" inch and adding sway bars get you 13% (3mpg) increase. Something seems fishy.

Banshee 01-22-2010 05:12 PM

167 miles is hardly enough to conclude the 13%

JMO.

they have the part number for both the LT and the SS, you just have to specify which model you have when ordering it

Morepwr 01-22-2010 05:23 PM

:bs:

So lower it until it just barely scrapes the road and get 40+MPG!!!:facepalm:

gotpball44 01-22-2010 05:37 PM

lol so you could buy any companies springs and sways. That has a 1 inch drop to gain that 13% mpg.

Sounds a little crazy, but it makes sense. In my car i could get up to 29-30 mpg on the freeway.

ffrcobra_65 01-22-2010 05:48 PM

maybe the bushings are filled with snake oil? :iono:

Ferrarimk13 01-22-2010 06:03 PM

they forgot to mention that the installation of their suspension also includes the installation of a hybrid engine.

bolteon593 01-22-2010 07:17 PM

you guys really dont get aerodynamics do you?

camarossowner 01-22-2010 07:33 PM

I bought the H&R kit for mine lowers the front 1.4 and the rear 1.3. Should be here buy Wednesday and install that Saturday. Pictures to follow.
