How much would hotchkis lowering springs for an F-body lower a GN compared to say, Bell Tech lowering springs for a G-body? Can the hotchkis springs still be cut like any other f-body spring? Thanks.

RacerX, I already have the Bell Tech springs, but it isn't low enough yet. And with that pigtail on the g-body springs, i can't cut them any shorter. I figured i could get a cheap set of f-body springs from the junk yard, but wanted an increased spring rate from stock. Wasn't sure if anyone had any idea or if I was just going to have to try it out.

Blackness,
One more question:..... Would I be correct in assuming that you had to use an f-body isolater after cutting the spring? Is it a 3rd gen. f-body? Thanks again...

Blackness,
Sorry for the confusion in the way I worded my last reply. I was just wondering if the coil spring isolators were from a 3rd gen.f-body b/c I thought you might have had to use those instead of the stock GN ones after cutting the pigtail off of the Eibachs. I guess I was just a little unclear of exactly where you cut them or something. Thanks for trying to get me cleared up on this.
