Vogtland & Bilstein suspension setup.

Years ago, I bought Bilstein shocks & Vogtland springs for my 95 Impala which I sold last year. I still have the suspension setup & was wondering if I would have any issues dropping them in my 95 Fleetwood?

Not unless you plan on jumping 5" curbs !


Seriously.....I ran Hotchkis springs (very similar to Vogtlands) and Bilstein shocks for years in my 9C1.

The stance was mean as hell and the car handled like it was on rails.

Now.....if this will present a bad situation for you; then you might wanna try something else.

Maybe I could interest you in a swap? My old 105K mile stock 9C1 springs and busted up Monroe shocks in my tool shed for your Bilsteins and Vogtlands?

LMK soon or they go to ebay.......

Good answer...& Let me sleep on it...

Just to be clear...this setup in my Fleetwood will be OK, Right?

It should be fine......I think your only limitation will be tire width because of your fender skirts.

But stock SS tires (255mm wide) should be fine. Anything wider would be a bit dicey.
