I was curious if there is a kit for our car that lowers car just a little but doesnt have the pogo effect that most kits have. Or do all kits have that pogo effect when lowered?

It should be in suspension....but if he/she has a v6, I can understand why it was posted here...the suspension for the 6s is different then the 6i in terms of engine weight load.

I think what he means is this...when we see a lowered car go over a slight bump...we see the car's suspension bounce more dramatically compared to say a car that is stock.

The bounce he referring to is in essence similiar to a pogo stick...where on a pogo stick the spring compresses, but then bounces back in an equal an opposite force.

So to answer his question...the answer would be yes...we can expect a result like this on many of the aftermarke suspension kits.

Yes thats exactly what i was talking about and also i do have a 3.0l so thats why i put it under the 3.0l section, sorry if i should have posted it else where. Sp is there anything you can do to eliminate the pogo effect like a better set of struts ie. koni adjustables?

You're not going to have a "pogo" like bounce if you add some lowering springs. Many can tell you that the ride will be very similar to stock. However after your factory shocks wear out you will have a more bouncy ride but, only due to the worn out shocks.
