Hotchkis has thier Impala SS springs on sale for $253.75. I had Summit Racing match the price, they also charge less for shipping. Came to $263 ish shipped. Can not wait to install.

Body mount mod. and "f" body sway bar is next.... when budget frees up again.......

Or you can get Vogtland's for $70 cheaper... They MAKE the springs for Hotchkis, just paint them a different color. I can't remember the exact price, but I think I paid $180 for the set.

Goes the show the markup on these things.

Also, $253 is not much of a sale price... I had some on order for $220 SHIPPED to the door earlier in the year.... After waiting 1 0 3 days I cancelled the order and had a set of Vogtlands on my door in 3 days..

Looked at Vogtlands. I could not confirm that they are the same spring. With shipping they were about $30 less than the Hotchkis. I like all the cars I have seen and the write ups on the Hotchkis.

Spartus,

After talking with Hotchkis I agree they have their springs made by Vogtland, but they have them made to Hotchkis specifiactions. They are not the same springs.
