Oooh, nice. With a car that old and so few miles, you might want to be prepared to do a little work to replace some of the rubber seals and hoses. Hopefully you can strike a deal and get it though.

The owner would start the car once a month and take it around the block but if I decide to buy it I will go over all the hoses.

King Springs come to mind as that's what I have on my car atm. Having said that I will be dialing in another set as the ones I have on there atm are about 10mm too low all-round and the rears fall out when it's up on a hoist, thereby making them illegal. Koni don't have shorter travel shocks other than the already shorter Koni shocks I have on there atm, so it will have to be the springs that will have to take up the slack.

Maybe the boys at KS can do a better deal if he does 2 sets.

Skrilla, there is a locally (US) sourced option. 100% custom made to your specifications. They are the same company that made the lowering springs for Isuzu Performance, and the price for custom springs isn't too bad.

Contact www.coilsprings.com (aka CSS). I have used them before, top quality. Many members of my Crown Victoria forum have used them as well, and numerous other sites too I am sure.

That might be a better and cheaper option Skrilla, but I'll keep you posted.
