I have a question concerning the suspension parts I am about to purchase.

The DR coil-overs are a no-brainer, but would I have better results with their package consisting the Deaver spring pack and Bilsteins, or should I just buy the coil-overs and shocks separately and scrounge around a bone yard for some Chevy springs and go that route?

It would be cheaper w/Chevy springs, but again, how about results?

Thanks for any info.

Thanks for the reply.

Do you have the Chevy springs?

From what I have read, the Donahoes will lift as high as the Chevy springs will.

Is this true?

Thanks again.

Thanks, yeah, I have read that too. No problem with that. Do the original hangers need to be cut off, or can they just be left alone?

Wow.....I thought 3.5"s of lift were attainable from the DR's and the Chevy springs gave up 3.5"s too.

Thanks for the replies.
