I’m not sure the factory rubber mounts are even still available. When I checked, some guys were using select Camaro mounts due to lack of availability. Energy Suspension makes a nice polyurethane kit which I installed on my car. The Energy Suspension mounts are likely cheaper than sourcing all the factory rubber mounts. The ride isn’t too harsh and they don’t make any squeaking noises. If your body mounts have never been changed they need to be replaced anyway.
not even sure if they were ever changed, I'm 2nd owner.

any advice on lowering springs?

I'm debating between BMR, UMI, Moog 5401 for rears? Not sure what for fronts? Been looking at various threads trying to figure out.
Looking for a 2" drop

Thanks!

I just made a bolt on brace for the rear of my Regal out of some extra roll bar tubing and 1/4" flat stock that I had.

I was utterly amazed how destroyed my factory body bushings were. I installed a prothane body mount kit and they fit great.

An alternative on the body mounts is the Summit kit which supposedly will last like polyurethane will but isn't quite as firm as poly. I have a set for my car which I haven't installed yet. I've seen some good reviews on them by members on here.....

That's what I put in my vehicle and I do like them. No squeeks and fit well.
