hey guys, as you might have read I will be purchasing a 95 impala(30k miles if it matters). anyways im VERY ignorant on suspension, but I do know i would like to drop the car 2 inches. Now it is a completley stock car and I will be keeping the stock rims, so can you please explain how I might be able to do this? maybe some companies and prices would be great, thanks

Here are some of the brands...

Hotchkis
H&R
Suspension techniques
Eibach
Spring tech
Intrax
Vogtland"new"

Maybe someone can add some that I've missed. I know there is a brand that drops a full 2-4", but I can't think of it right now. If you do a search there is lots of reading of the pros/cons of each brand. Take a look at other member's cars to see the stance. Some have more rake than others. Seriously consider upgrading the shocks to Bilsteins despite the low miles. My personal opinion for you is the Hotchkis springs. I can't think of any bad reviews of these on the forum. They have a real nice stance too.
Eibachs are not recomended due to inconsistancy. Hope I could help a little. This is only the beginning for you.

edit:O.k I looked it up "sprint", If I'm not mistaken, they are the lowest for our cars.

you can use 2" drop coils up front and drop coils out back.

Or you can use belltech spindles up front and drop coils out back.

If you get the spindles the front will ride the same as stock. If you get the coils up front it may be stiffer or softer depending on the compny you go with.

I recommened the bilstein sport shocks and hotchkis springs....nice rake, not a rough ride at all... Its a 1.5" front drop, and 1" out back, and handles very well.
