Geezer - So, besides a little loss of ride height, old springs don't really lose any of their "springiness"?

I've been wondering about that. I bought the SVT kit for my SVT. I did the front end, but haven't gotten to the rear yet. The car looks a lot better without the rear end so high and, more importantly, I haven't been looking forward to replacing the springs themselves. If I won't lose anything by just replacing the shocks, I'd sure prefer to go that route.

The difference in ride/feel with the new front struts was incredible. It's like a whole new car and only half done.
