Vette Brakes & Products...

I believe they're either in Florida, or Texas.

Just search the web!

I have a set on my car. I think they're very good springs. The car corners fairly flat (for a 30 year old muscle car) and they seem to handle the power of my stout 400 SB just fine. I don't have any wheel hop but I also don't dump the clutch at 5000rpm with slicks. I do an occasional burnout and hard launch and they do great.

I also have 2" lowering blocks in the back plus one coil cut off the stock front springs, poly bushings everywhere, subframe connectors, and a big sway bar up front along with 17" wheels/tires.

Another member here once reported delamination problems with 450+ HP and hard launches on slicks but I have not had any problems.

Check them out at www.vettebrakes.com
