Hey guys, I finally decided that my front end was too "unsupported" by the never ending scraping on almost every little bumb. My prior setup was stock springs w/80K on them and the 94-96 Bilstiens. I got my wife a 96 Caprice with trailer tow pkg and I LOVE the way that car handles "obstacles". Well, I wanted that for my SS. Obtained two "FTN" springs from Chevy and last Sat threw them on. The car certainly sits higher in the front but I am still deciding if it is too high. The taller springs were a bit of a bear to get in but did so without too much profanity. I think I got one in with the tag up, and am not sure about being properly "seated" on top. I have put the new springs through their paces and they are GREAT compared to the low riders that came with the car. Now I fear no curbs, driveways, railroad tracks or small animals . Anyone out there please advise on the seating on the top of the spring and spring orientation. I did tape the insulator to the top of the spring so I know it is there. Gonna go 4 wheelin now. Thanks.
