found a thread from 08' so decided to start a new one.

anyone know where i can get my suspension springs reset? there are companies overseas that basically oven bake your springs and reset them, rather than sticking them in a vice and welding till they bend.

the impala needs a 80 or so mm drop and king only seem to offer 30mm.

anyone?

There's a place in Moorabin that resets springs, Moorabbin Springs in Levanswell rd Moorabbin. Or Spicers Springs in bayswater .

Just get some custom made, if you contact Kings and tell them what you want, they will make them to suit. Same with any manufacture.

Not necessarily, the reason why they don't sell springs that low is because they most likely won't be seated in the spring buckets at full suspension droop, which is obviously illegal.
