Just to clear things up. Sorry about doing this again but I did not leave enough info on the last post. I bought 3" lowering springs for my '71 chevelle, front and back. I know that lowering the car compresses normal shocks and makes the ride rough, and wheres out normal shocks fast. Like when I lowered a 95 chevy truck, the kit came with nitto lowering shocks. Oringal Parts Group sells kyb low-profile shocks but there 50.00 each, rear only. I would like to find front and rear shocks. Maybe cheaper too. normal shocks have about 3 to 4 inches of travel anyway,and if you lower the body 3 inches, you close the gap to the bottom shock mounts, then you have about 1" maybe, of travel. Not good. If anybody has bought any shocks for lowered cars, or knows where I can buy some please let me know. thanks [img]graemlins/clonk.gif[/img]

Doesn't Bell Tech have shocks for this application. Or is it just truck stuff?
