    hi

    want to lower my front end about 1". Have a 73 camaro with a big block , iron heads. Street use only/c400hp.. Looking at the s2 (500lb rate) or 37 (750lb rate) and wanted opinions , especially for those using them. driving a lot on normal streets. Some smooth , some with bumps and potholes. Want some comfort and a ride that won't jar. Also want the performance. I note stock spring rate is only about 350 so leaning toward the s2 at 500lbs.
    I know the s2 is listed as 67-69 but global west say it can be used in a 73
