I know that the AC compressor and other things are on that side adding about 80 lbs. But with the speed bumps on campus, I bottom out pretty bad if there is anything or anyone in the car except me. So, I am thinking about changing springs to H&R OE sports. Does any one have any input about these? How much worse is my handling going to be? I would really like to keep a stiff spring but I need the extra clearance compared to the bavarian auto springs. Any one else have another idea? larger wheels are out of the question, too expensive among other reasons.
