you need to know how much weight is on each wheel then you can do the math or easier call a spring co or coil over shock co. Carrara - aldan- monroe etc. tell them what you have and they can recommend a spring.

If you want to keep the trans am suspension fairly stock try giving Eaton Detroit Spring a call and give them all the info you have. They can wind up some coils that'll give you the ride you want for about the price of one coilover shock. :cool:

NAPA has a catalog that gives specs on auto coil springs. Look for ones that have the same od & ride ht as yours. Chose by finding ones from the above catagory that are from a similiar wt car.....Don
