1LE Springs

Does anyone know if the stock 1LE springs are any lower than the 1SS? A local guy is selling factory 1LE springs for cheap and I just wanted to check if my car will be any lower if I put them on...

They're the same spring. The ZL1 is different and will give you a little bit of a drop between a half inch and an inch. If you're looking at lowering your car go with the Apex lowering springs. They're Pfadt springs remanufactured and relabeled and work excellent.

Confused on "they're the same spring. The ZL1 is different" statement.

The SS and the SS/1LE use the same part number springs.

The ZL1 uses a unique or different P/N.

SS/1LE are Linear Rate
ZL1 is Progressive.
