Hey guys just wanna know if anyone has upgraded their springs (what brand and if you love em) and what exactly it took (energy polyurethane) bumpstops for clearance ive heard of people trimming bump stops but need to know about that. I like the eibach all fours for the price, 300$. I also have 4 ball joints and apparently they dont have grease zerc fittings so idk how to feel about that they say they last longer cause its already pre filled, i think i got jipped. Thank you guys.

I run the Eibach Pro on my car and love the Ride and stance. FYI - There is a member here selling a BNIB set in the FS section. I went with the ZQ8 Bumpstops that you should be able to get at the Dealer still.

As for the Suspension Wear parts like BJ's, Tie rods, etc....I only use 2 brands. Prefer Moog or have used Pro-Forged. I would stay far away from the stuff on Ebay or the parts houses unless you are sure it's Moog. Be aware that the industry standard seems to be that the China crap will use the same Part # that is used by Mood. Same as Autozone (duralast) and others so be aware of what you're getting. Too much time involved to rplace and the Quality is much better for a BeaSStly car.

Here is when I swapped out some parts on my car that could be helpful for part numbers and other ideas to consider. While this is for a 5/8" BJ setup, the same applies to the Standard 9/16" version if you're looking to do this yourself. If not, it gives you an idea of what parts you may want to pickup if you are getting the parts and paying someone else to install. Just stay far away from the junk you see cheap on Ebay. It's cheap for a reason.

Thank you 4DoorSS I was told Eibach is the way to go for our heavy cars but heard some people get mismatched parts or maybe they didnt seat it properly and somehow the car doesnt sit correctly but im pumped im glad you like them and cant wait to get em. Good my new steering stuff is Moog and Proforged (glad you like proforged wasnt sure how people felt its a good company) thank you for the link, my older bro is a master technician for big O tires and says they charge a grip for ball joints. On top of ball joints i would like to do control arm bushings and body bushings since im re doing the front end and shocks id like to see this car transform. My car is a 1995 Chevy Impala. Thank you again. Did not know that about autozone, ive always been told to stay away ill be double sure now.
