Hello I am looking to do an all around suspension upgrade on my 1998 z28. I am looking for something with high performace but not insanely stiff. What would you guys suggest doing?

What he said, plus some Strano sway bars...

Then Strut brace and 3-pt. Subframe connectors

alright thanks guys right now I'm looking at the Eibach LS1 Pro-kit Lowering Springs, and Koni Sport Shock Set w/On-Car Single Adjustable Rears. I would realy like new struts but I couldn't seem to find them on that site. Where could I find those?

if i remember right the pro springs are pretty low. from what ive heard the strano springs are better and dont sagg so much over time. if your gona put down that much cash give sam strano a call and grill him for info and recomendations. them are good shocks and struts and you are gona really notice a difference with them. i had the stock orange ones on mine and switched to the adjustable koni's,,, was like i was driving a different car.

I think I'm going to go with the 4 shock on car adjustables then see where the hight is and order the springs later if I decide I want it lower.

i got the double adjustable struts and set it down which dropped it a little less than 3/4 inch in the front. did the hose mod on the back but im thinking of putting it back stock in the back and see if i like it.

Yea those are nice but a little high in price I think the single on car adjustables are just right for what I'm going for. It said on the site that the front should drop about 3/4" with the single adjust so we'll see if thats enough for my taste.
