Good afternoon all, did anyone ever actually complete a Saturn chassis’d car, and if so, what length rear shocks did you for, and what spring rates?

This post may be useful on the old haynes forum?

I'm about to order the parts suggested by the user CTWV50 from Rally Design.

There a couple of posts there, so to be clear, this is what I'm going for. With a shorter shock on the rear.
The rear does sit high on mine with the same height shocks all round. I have scrap shocks on right now, just so that I could move it.
