What brand would you guys recomend, that don't ride ridiculously stiff, and handle really well.
I have a used set on mine, and they ride like complete ****,(Don't even know the brand)
Some input would be great.
Thanks in advance.

Eibach or Hotchkis. Since Hotchkis has discontinued their OBS coils, I'd go Eibach.

I had 2" Eibach coils on my '91 when it was static dropped and I had a pair of 3" Eibach coils on my '99 Yukon. Both sets rode and handled great.

Thats where I'm at right now, and those say they will only lower 1-1.5"
Is that still really a 2" coil, or not.
Cause I need the 2 inches.

I'm guessing the 3812.520 is the spring listed on autoanything.
And if it is, have you ever used autoanything, or heard any bad things about it.

Also, the "3812.520" is actually a truck coil, cause they only coil they have listed for my tahoe is a (1") drop,
The 3812.520 should still work for my tahoe right?

mmmm, I'm researching autoanything, and they don't have a whole lot of good reviews, from what I can see, is it's taking a risk by ordering through them. there are very few good reviews.

If they hotchkis still has some, would you prefer them over eibach?
I'll give them a call tomorrow, cause I'm sure it's a little late to call them now.

I would prefer them, only because I have used them in the past with amazing results. Great price to. I paid 100 for mine.
Remember though, its not just the coil, its the shock and coil combo which is going to give you superior handling.

I have heard good things about DT shocks. I'm considering the 2.0 shock made by DT. I hear they can build them to your spec.
