My two cents
Nice choice. (I got ST springs)
Shorter and stiffer makes a huge difference.
Check the shock mounts while your in there, front and rear, they wear out.
If you replace the mounts do it right. (I'd suggest adjustables)
Shorter springs usually need shorter shocks to stay within the spec travel for the valving etc or they may may fail.
Seems Bilstien sports or Koni's are the only ones that last in these cars.
or maybe Sachs, so Ive read
Some say KYB or Tokico's fail (the Miata guy swears by KYB?)
I'm getting ST bars to go with my set up.
Kraut doesnt believe in sway bars LOL
BTW I just got Hawk HPS brake pads installed yesterday. So far so good.
(wifes pissed about the $$$ ...as usual)
Hint save up cash from lunch money split the bill at the shop ie $150 cash for parts then charge the $140 labor and then lie like hell ... :lol:
BMWCCA Autocross this Sat here is SD, wish me luck.
Maybe some day I'll be as fast as the Kraut LOL
