    [TD]Installation is quite involved. I used an over-engine brace and heavy duty ratcheting straps to hold the motor idle while I pulled the factory k-member out. I was able to do this in my garage on jack stands so a lift is not necessary (although it would make it sooo much easier). Don't forget to square it up!![/TD]

    Brand: SVE
    Part: Specific Rate Lowering Springs
    Installation: Got all 4 springs installed with an alignment for $300.
    Review: I got these through ebay brand new for a bargain of $70. They lowered my car 2.08 inches. The look of the car is amazing. The ride quality is not as good as before, but they havent settled in yet and every other part of my suspension is stock.

    If you got them off of Ebay they aren't SVE Springs. SVE parts are exclusive to Latemodel Restoration.

    they are exactly the same as the ones off lmr. red, specific rate, 2" drop.
    your saying an ebay store cant buy them from lmr and re-sell them to people without advertising they are by SVE?

    all i know is theyre aftermarket springs; i could careless what you guys decide to call them.

    Don't get me wrong, an ebay store might have bought them from Latemodel. I've just never seen them sold on Ebay.
