how is the ride compared to stock ??
and were did you buy from and how much did you pay, im looking for a suspension setup right now.
I was actuly thinking of gettin a stock sport setup because i dont want to loose the nice ride.
You lose some of the cushy ride, I had sport suspension with 17 inch Style 19 wheels and went OE M5 wheels which are 18 in. and lowered the car. You only feel it when going over imperfections in the road surface. It handles much better in the corners than b4. Go to shox.com for more suspension info.
I bought my suspension parts off ebay, H&R sport springs and Bilstein sports for lowered suspension from two different vendors. Both products came with there factory warranties. $700 for suspension another $320 for front wheel bearings and hardware, $80 for a 4 wheel alignment.
