I should have an ass load of overtime over the next month. Since my car has 115K miles on it, it should be time for new springs and shocks. I have the sport suspension now, and love how the car sits low. I really want to keep that, but not go any lower, I bottom the car out enough as is. I also DO NOT want a stiffer ride. I drive this car to work every day, and want the smoothest ride possible.
What would should I get? I was thinking about bilstens and some spring with 1 1/2" of drop to them. Does anyone know how much the factory sport suspension is lowered compared to stock?

Bilstein Touring have a near OEM (Boge ) feel on my 1988 750. The only downside was the strut rod is not threaded as far down as the Boge and I had to put a flat washer under the brass washer just below the strut lock nut to be able to torque her down and stop any rattles. Not any big deal but if you go that route remember this post. I bought my struts from PROAM Auto in Texas for $65.00 each

what if I got an adjustable shock. Would the softest setting be clost to stock? Then I could set it to firm when I needed the handeling.
