$700.00 installed. 2 inch drop all the way around. The ride feels good, took some of the harshness out of the rear.

BABolt, I would like to get some of the harsh ride out of my L but I do not want to gieve up too much handling. How does the Roush set up compare to stock handling wise( lean in the corners and ride harshness)?
What does $700.00 get you in the way of hardware, springs, shocks, sway bars ect.? Thanks.

It gets you the Roush springs installed at all four corners and an alignment. I passed on the Bilstein shocks. The handling is excellent and I know of no one that has gone this route that has a complaint.

Well...Steeda has the kit for 410.00. It lowers the Lightning 1 inch front 2.5 inch rear....Steeda also sells the Edelbrock IAS shocks...they use a special length for the rear due to the drop..so beware if you buy from Summit...Steeda is proven..I would jesture to say Roush is proven...will Roush sell the kit?...Bilstein's..stay away from them..they are rough..rough..rough...I had them on my '98 Z-28...Steeda will not use them either...Steeda been around awhile..lata..jw

Whitelightnin'-
What's the deal with the Steeda kit? I tried their site, but it sucked. Too slow because of too much unnecessary movement. Anyway, the 1 / 2.5 drop sounds like what I'm looking for, but I didn't see it on their site. The only one I saw was for the Gen 1s. Any help or info is appreciated. BTW, do you have the Steeda kit and (if so) did you do your own kit or did you have someone else install it for you? If you did it, how hard was it?

DUCK
