I was wanting to know why there's a need to change the suspension if we already have nice suspensions in our cars already.Can anyone explain this to me?

Some do it because they want a firmer ride, others do it because they like the look of it lower, others want to race their cars at the track...

I always wanted to know why the ride was'nt as firm as other cars so who makes a good suspension that will give me a more firmer ride?I always hear about hotchkis but i'm not for sure.

Because after 11-16 years and 150k+ miles, sh1t tends to wear out.

There's nothing special about B-body suspension. It's 1960s technology. Impala/9C1s have stiffer springs and shocks. That's about it.

In most cases I replace stuff as it breaks. That was how I did the complete front suspension. I replaced the rear in order to be able to put 11" wide wheels out back without tubbing or hitting the frame. Now she handles really well but is a good amount stiffer then stock. The only thing stock anymore are the upper and lower A-arms out front. The tubular ones were not out yet when I did the tear down. I rode in my friend's '96 last week and I could not believe how soft it felt. His even has stiffer than stock bilsteins in it. I kinda missed it on those long drives.
