Ditto. I used Hotchkis 2" drop springs. They are good and there are a few other suppliers that also supply them.

We recommend springs over spindles, as you'll have a much better set up for handling and turning. You'll find parts for a 2 or 3" drop from any of our vendors. The Camaro below has the 3" drop kit on it.
