They are only for coil overs, and they are not really what "I" had in mine. I was thinking along the lines of the subaru ones.

Paying someone to install parts and bragging about it being fast, is like watching someone bang your wife and being proud to raise their kids.

I bet you're right, the back end is already high enough already, they probably just leveled out the front. It will be interesting to try out.

What about the Malibu with a V6? Did they do something different to handle the weight?

Mike and I have loaded Z's, which are big heavy pigs compared to most J's, so we're used to our cars sitting lower than usual.

I just saw this thread for the first time, but Vogtland makes donk springs for 3rd gen J-bodies, last time I checked. I don't know how much of a lift they give, but it would be a place to start.

It's probably tucked away in some warehouse where GM put all the stuff it didn't need anymore.
