Its more of a tune not a chip, sorry idk why I said chip lol. It is a different tune then the Trifecta it is made for the bugattis, ferraris, etc. But he has a american tune that gives it better response towards the engine, hp, and louder cam.

They are good stiff ride.... If you want to keep you oem ride get the HOTCHKIS ones that is what I have now, had the other ones but changed them out ... oh you will need an alignment with it so about 300 or so..

Do they know you are part of the head turners group as well? I wonder why the springs would be regular price when all other stuff is 50%. Maybe their sale is for LS3/L99 components. Did you tell them that you would get it installed their too? I'm assuming you talked to Joe because he's the one that frequents the board.

Yeah, that's what I thought, must be V8 parts. Call Granatelli or Haddad to see if they'll install your sprigs for a good price.

Also, since your close, call Big Johns performance shop right on creekside. They quoted me REALLY cheap to install and align a long time ago. I never ended up going with them though.
