Spring options for a Fleetwood

Ok so I looooove cushy feel of floating down the road, but man, my wagon feels like a porsche in the corners compared to the FW......

I do have a set of 9C1 springs about, but somewhere in my distant past I heard of folks putting SS springs in too.

Would the SS springs drop the ride height? If so, assuming I'd need different shocks too. Any other considerations?

I see a set of used ones in the FS section and am considering.....

I had Fleetwoods with SS springs, 9c1 springs, and Sprint springs. The best ride/handling I found was with SS springs in the front/9c1 springs in the rear and Hotckiss sway bars.

My current '94 has Sprint springs but it sits too low. I am going back to SS fronts and 9c1 rears.

When I had SS springs all around, the rear would sag when there were rear passe
Second vote for SS springs in front and 9C1 rear. Made huge change in handling and I like the appearance. I upgraded the shocks to bilsteins at same time too. Probably ran about 40K kms on this setup and very pleased.
