If I were to lower the Impala, what would you guys suggest for a spring/strut? rockauto.com have like 37 options.

Is it going to matter if i have the 3.4 on the springs?

just read someones review on the springs

i put the lowering springs on a 03 impalaLS and it is deffinatly lower and looks great! but the down side is the axle angle created a vibration on accel, i have the shorter dogbones, and rubber non-hydraulic tranny mount, and it still vibrates hard under accel. recommended for show only!

could be a lot of things causing his vibration and the springs just made it more noticeable. Hard to tell from his brief review.

If hes running poly mounts in the shorter dog bones along with the non-hydraulic tranny mount, vibrations will be inevitable. There are a lot of people here running the SSC springs and I dont recall any vibration issues. Most run the KYB GR2 (or what ever they are called now) I prefer the AGX for the adjustability.
