New Suspension Suggestions?

So I need new suspension and I need some advice as well. I like Steeda, do they have good suspension equipment? Also I have roush side skirts and ground effects with dual side exhaust, so the car doesn't need to be lowered. But I would like some good race springs... ( handling is nice, but not a must) Any suggestions?

How important is ride?


Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17

Kind of important, but I would enjoy performance more. The biggest thing is that the side skirts and exhaust already sit so low, I dont want to worry about it dragging if I get new springs.

Offhand, I'd say go with Roush -they have v6 springs, and they were made to work with your side skirts.

The Roush springs drop the front end 1.5" and the rear .8" I dont want it to drop anymore. So what else would I have to get?

Stick with the OEM springs and use better anti-sway bars to keep cornering even.

no, if you don't want to lower the car, your springs are fine -you need better anti-sway bars for handling.
