The only thing that comes to mind is that the aftermarket stereo won't sit flush with the dash. Also, I wish there were more aftermarket parts available for the Riviera, such as lower springs.

I imagine we could get under $300 if we get ~10 orders.

it was almost exactly a year ago i got that quote. its just the springs. the air shocks shouldnt affect it. im not even sure we actually NEED the rear springs. it MIGHT level out by itself. maybe be could even cut the rod down for the level sensor thingy. idk. im sure it would be better just to do both sets though.

it would be much cheaper for you guys to make a group buy for eibach 98-99 cadillac seville sts springs, which also offer a 1" drop. I know Brad from never enough auto carries the eibach line.

They're about 205-215 bucks on ebay, for all 4.

Can we move the spring topic to it's own thread...

I would really like to get these springs. Is there an interest in a group buy? I know some of you did a group buy on the sway bars...how did that work? and how did that work out? Did one guy have everything shipped to him and he shipped it to everyone else or was it shipped from the distributer straight to the member?

I'm one person for a group buy, any other serious participants?

A group buy on springs sounds good, but we still need to identify the spring that will work best, and also I think we should wait until everyone gets their sway-bars before we start up an order for something else.

Contact Brad at Never enough Auto

Pricing:
Front Sway Bar $115 + $15s/h
Rear Sway Bar $115 + $15s/h
Front and Rear Combo $225 + $25s/h

He has 2 sets left at that price. Once his stock has run out, the price will go up and reflect this year's price from the supplier, Addco (+40$)

Go for it, the 95 and 96 rivs had the smallest swaybars and will benefit most from their replacement.

As for the springs, I wouldn't bother getting springs custom made. You could use either the eibach cadillac STS springs (1.0 inch drop front and rear), DeVille springs (1.2 inch drop, possibly softer) or even intrax springs for the STS (1.7 inch drop front and rear, too much IMO)

If you want a group buy for that, I'm sure we could get brad to make us a good deal on eibach springs.

Hopefully eibach is a more reliable company.

I'd imagine something would have to be done with the ride height sensor in order to allow the rear to drop that 1".

All sevilles had the same springs and the eibach kit is for the SLS and STS.
I'm eventually going to buy a set anyway.

I plan on doing away with the air shocks and going with the Rancho shock conversion so that won't be an issue. Do you have a phone number or email for Brad in regard to the sway bars? Thanks.
