Tell me more about spring blockers....did you make them. I looked on a couple of vendors sites and couldn't find them. Who sells them?

I have run spring blockers on the street in my car for close to 100,000 miles now , one per side rides fine and gets rid of the ass sag these cars are known for.

to the person asking what they are- all the gm cars built by holden for sale in the us such as gto/g8 got red polyurethane spring blockers to keep the cars from pitching around on the transport boats. most of these got thrown away at the dealer level allthough a few guys found out how well they work installed in the rear springs of fwd cars to limit the amount of weight transferred off of the front wheels upon launch , 2 per side works decent at the track.

at the track I prefer the cable mod since it allows no weight transfer off the front wheels but you dont ever want to use it on the street and you could fail tech if you caught a sharp inspector due to no rear suspension travel

I use the old school style spring clamps/raisers. they have 2 bolts and like U saped brackets that fit the spring dia. You can get at any parts store cheap. I jack the back end up off the ground, install and adjust the nut so I get them to there max seperation point then lower the car down. repeat on other side. I use 1 per side too. Although it looks like I raised the rear alot once its settled its about 1 to 2 inces higher and minimizes the rear travel substansially. Look at this pic launching and you can see the rear isnt that low. 2.19 60ft here.

Where can I get some like the red ones you have a picture of?

join one of the regal gs or gtp forums and ask for them , someone always has some

a guy named Joe from N.C. usually has some in the for sale section on the original regal gs forum (regalgs.org) he works at a dealer and saves all the ones coming through his store

you could also try posting on 3800pro
