Even though it says convertable v6, would it be fine to put in on my car with ttops?

There are quite a few guys who have had issues with Eibach springs sagging in their cars, do a quick search on LS1tech and you will see all the post on on it. If you were interested I could get you a set of our BMR spring to go go along with your BMR strut tower brace. I am sure I could math that price also.

The BMR lowering springs are 1.25" all the way around. Any lower and you really start to have clearance issues going over speed bumps and what not. Here is a quick picture of my buddy's T/A with our springs installed.

The LCA relocation brackets aren't necessary since you are mostly into handling stuff but I would definitely recommend an adjustable panhard bar to help center the rear end back under the car after it has been lowered.

I'm running their springs. They perform pretty well, although I feel the rear has sagged a bit since I put them on but can't say for sure without measurements. Car still handles great in any case, kept up with a modded Evo at an Auto-X last weekend.




I'll see if I can get a pic of the current stance for comparison.

Yea those were some loaner wheels at the time. I'm back on the Chrome 16's that came with the car until I find a new set of wheels I like/can afford. She's not a WS6, picked up that hood after a fender bender destroyed the stock hood.
