Although not adjustable, I would recommend bilstein b8's for handling. As far as springs go, I can't really recommend one as all of the aftermarket springs don't have spring rates, so I would say get aero springs.For that max price I would spend. I want the most reliable, sporty, shock/spring setup this value can get me. Any recommendations?
That's a chunk of money right there....i have aero springs. i added these powergrid adjustable sway links the other day. wow. forget those crap meyle HD "uprated" links. those died on me after the first month. highly recommend these.
Buy a truck.I live in hilly and windy roads. They are not maintained at all. Honestly I get poppy sound when I hit a bad bump. I replaced lower control arm bushing with polyethylene. I think that's how it is, but I want comfort, and a lot less body roll
Chip Minich makes these in Michigan, a retired GM engineer. 150 plus shipping is not a lot of money for an outstanding quality spherical all weather part that will outlast the car and is adjustable to boot? That Meyle crap lasts less than Six months. The OP found that. So did I.That's a chunk of money right there....
ok. but my car isnt lowered. and its not comfortable at all. whatsoever. i use these FSD's and its so brutal. ughhhBuy a truck.
You're not going to get comfort on a lowered car (or even a stiffly damped one at stock height) on bumpy roads.
Hell, even with my freshly revamped stock suspension on my Linear; the car can feel over-damped over certain roads and bumps; and it certainly does not ride in a manner I would call overly comfortable. Sporty...yes. Comfortable? Not really over bumpy roads.
I agree with you. Hyperco make springs for me, they are very good people to deal with and super responsive to a joint project. We have talked many times about the SAAB deal as they do get calls.Wish there was demand to develop springs for this platform, I would take the aero springs and send them to hyperco! Get a nice progressive spring built for ride quality/some track use. Minor drop. Those and b8's.... Now that would be great! Requesting quote I guess.
