Hello all, did some searching but didn't come up with much, has anyone heard of any information on ZZP's Drop in Strut/Spring Combo? Was looking to replace/upgrade my suspension with tax returns this year. ZZP's kit looks pretty nice, and is probably the route I'm going, but any input would be great. It says drop in, but I am a pretty big noob when it comes to this kind of stuff haha. Wouldn't mind just replacing it with a cheaper stock suspension if I could find it. But either way, I think I'll throw on a F-body brake kit as well. Very Happy

I don't think anyone really knows what ZZPs springs are. Given their issues with customer service and quality control, I would steer clear of them.

I redid my suspension with all new parts for a hair under 900 bucks using Vogtland Springs and AGX struts. If you are handy with a wrench you can do them yourself get sprins, AGX struts and new mounts (reuse the rubber parts I didn't as listed in this link) and you can get the job done for like 750 bucks.

FWIW, I had never done suspension work before and it was a relatively easy job to get done and I would recommend anyone with half a brain and the proper tools to at least consider doing everything from scratch on their own.

FYI, I found out the hard way that anything that ZZP sells as their private label stuff only has a 1 year warranty. I had a set of brake lines blow out on me that were replacements for when they had their unannounced 'recall' on them - I contacted support and told them that I wanted to return them for my money back since I didn't trust the brake lines after blowing one (left rear), having two break when I changed my brake pads (both rears on another set), having the strain reliefs cracked and falling off on the front lines, and their little recall deal...they basically told me that since I have had them for more than a year that there was nothing they could do.

For example, for the same money or a little more money, I would rather go and buy a set of Goodridge brake lines that have a lifetime warranty.
