ok fellas i got the 9c1 in the paint shop and it should be done sometime next week. i have already contacted dal and got hooked up for the ss wheels. now i need some spring and shock advice. i have the 9c1 shocks on there now and they feel fine, but will eventually put the bilestein "stiffy" shocks or the monroe severe service shocks. i want the car to sit at impala ss height and have a nice tight ride. will be running stock size tires to maintain a comfortable ride, but i want it tight and snug to the road, BUT IT HAS TO SIT AT STOCK IMP SS HEIGHT.
what do you all recommend?

SS fronts or cut 1/2 a coil off the stock springs. SS rears.

If you want a bit firmer ride than now, get the ZQ8 bump stops, if you want a firm ride, but not harsh, get the Global West front springs.

will the combination of ss spring and bilestien shocks make for a nice sporty ride that hugs the corners.

I 2nd the GW springs, love 'em. Not too harsh even with the "stiff" bilsteins.

Bilstein "Sport" shocks with SS springs do a good job.
