WHICH LOWERING SPRINGS?

Wanting to lower my V6, There are so many springs to choose from. Would preffer not to use Chinese made, since I am not trusting their built. What have you used and had good results? and what is exesive lowering? iam after good curve handling its not a DD but often, looking for nice stance also please share with me. which brand and how low is ok . for all type of drives.
thanks in advance for any suggestions

KW V3s have been my favorite so far. Pedders Super cars are much more firm in comparison.

Bmr make great springs that don’t sag and tons of choices.
Are you also upgrading the struts? Coil overs may be a better option. I was gonna do new struts and springs then realized pedders coil overs where a few bucks more and much better and adjustable.

I realy dont want to break the bank, I read that BMR are popular, and are US made, its a question of how low is too low? want something average 1.2 or 1.4 might be enough? was not planning on doing any thing else to it like struts or coil overs just the min necessary for some handling improvements , the car is stock. in fact whats the cheap way to make i growl a bit? thanks for your imput

Bmr 1.5” are popular and seem to be about right.
Growl a bit on a budget ? Muffler delete and a cold air intake

Touch the exhaust and you will likely be unhappy since you will never get a growl. GM did wonders on the V6 exhaust to make sound so mellow. I hear a few V6 cars around here that have been altered and it sounds like tractor pull heaven. But maybe to a younger generation fart cans on steroids sound good. Maybe they can't hear it over the rap music?

I have had the Pfadt Race Engineering 1.25 springs for 10 years now. Nice ride and not too soft or stiff. And if I recall they weren't that much either.

thanks for the info, there are so many out there , also H&R are well known from Germany, are coils and shock a better choice? or are just springs enough? thanks again, you have a beautiful car.
How close are u to PB ? their Camaro club are having a C&C on the 5th , I probably should stop by (:

You are welcome sir! Yes, H&R are good too. Anything German made is a good product. The Germans make great stuff for their performance cars. I am running stock struts and shocks and the Pfadt springs, have been for 10 years. I am satisfied with it. And thanks for the compliment on the car! I appreciate that. If by PB you mean Palm Beach, I'm about 2 hours away, north. I have never been to one of their C&C's yet. Been wanting to go.
