Default '01 9-5 Aero Help with suspension upgrade

Hello all

My Aero seems a bit soft-any suggestions on suspension upgrade?

Thank you
Michael

There's a couple of recent threads about upgrading suspension on the Aero. Lower stiffer springs is a good start, Eibach are popular. I don't think Aero dampers are worth changing if they're ok, depending on mileage. Anti roll bars are a good upgrade, these can be upgraded to '02+ Aero spec.

I am using Swedish Dynamics springs and Koni Sports, Konis set on "medium". Very happy with the results.

Oh yeah ARBs front and rear also.

You can get packages from Eibach and others which include both components.

Other Forumites will chime in with their personal set ups...
