Would this suspension set-up be to stiff for a 71 camaro as a daily driver:

Hotchkis springs front/rear
edelbrock ias shocks
Global West subframe con.
Poly Graphite bushings every where
Solid Subframe bushings
1 1/4 & 7/8 swaybars

as long as you dont use aluminum bushings (body mounts are fine in aluminum) then your alright. i didnt know suspensions could be too stiff for the street. too loose and mushy is a problem.

A lot depends on local roads, and what you like.
The Hotchkis springs will be about twice as stiff as you have now.
