for the bumpstops I would only need to order 2? And also I was looking for springs n shocks that might give me a little more height then stocks spring n shocks ... Also for where I live up in Canada lol the roads are mad bumpy so dunno how hotchkis springs and bilstens shocks would do on the ride

Stock height springs will be fine for what you are trying to do as well as the stock bump stops. You just need stiffer shocks especially up front. If you plan on lowering the car any then you will need to definately replace the bump stops as well. But it isnt a make or break issue with the stock springs as long as you are running good shocks. Also need to remove the two upper most bolts in the front fenders. 265/35/22 tires if staying with stock caprice springs. If you wanna lower it then you need to rethink this tire set-up.


9C1 police springs and 22's will be high as a giraffe's a$$. But if 4x4 is what you want then this would be the route to go.
