Okay Gents, this is always a hot topic, yet I haven't really figured out a

Want to get springs for my 200 20V that DON'T lower it. Living in upstate
NY, (not in suburbia) I really want to keep my ground clearance for the
occasional snow storms (2 times 2 footers this year). Springs I have are
somewhat beat, little wishy washy in road dips etc, and don't believe it's
the struts. Going to be installing a tower brace, tires, and alignment, so
figure it's now, or way later. Would obviously do struts if replacing

Jim Rose had suggested possibly using S6 springs. Anyone have specs for 200
20v vs. S6 springs? Have surfed quite a bit, haven't found anything on stock
or aftermarket spring specs. Would like a little stiffer, same height, or
close to it. Could possibly trim springs down without affecting tempering
(cut-off wheel, lots of cool water) if needed?

Saw a set of S6 H&R's on the MP, maybe wouldn't drop 200 as much due to
weight difference?

Thoughts? (okay, flame away!)
