New Guy to F-Body's Suspension

Hey guys! Im new to F-Bodys and I've had my 97' Trans Am for about two months now and I want to lower the car a little bit but still retain a comfortable feel for daily driving but a nice stiffness for spirited driving. Can anyone recommend some spring/shock combos and details to help me in the process? Thanks in advance! -Kolya

Springs and Suspension
Hotchkiss and Eibach

Shocks

Bilstein and Konis

Not sure if spelled correct.

Maybe other can provide more specific guidance.

Wanting to run SCCA events or Just Spirited handling?

New here myself.

Good luck with your new project.

Strano springs will be the best.

Go with Eibach Pro and just throw on some KYBs or some Bilsteins. I went with the KYBs and the ride was fine.
