I daily drive my sti.. I'm making the move to auto-x this summer.. I can't have all out badass coilovers as I need some street comfort.
My current drivetrain/suspenion mods:
Subframe rear lock bolts
Rear Diff bushings
Steering Rack Bushings
Rear Outrigger Bushings
Cusco 22mm F Swaybar
Cusco Adj R swaybar, full stiff
Kartboy short shifter, shifter bushings
Cheapy Rear STB
So I'm not opposed to NVH is what I'm saying.
Tein Flex with EDFC - $$$$
Bilstein PSS9 - $$$$
KW V3 - $$$$
Ohlins struts - $$$$
Tokico struts and spacers - $$
Falken 452s - so sue me they're cheap
I need something that:
A.) Replaces stock struts, they are beat, well the rears.
B.) Leaves me with functioning kidneys, sure thats a personal sensitivity thing.. but I'm really just tired of bobble head and KABLAM all the time.. I daily drive this..
C.) Possibly replacing prodrives, so spring options would be key too.. RCE Regular Guys or Swifts may be in order.
Don't tell me to search, most threads are people without specific needs or insight.. just a desire to gobble up as many parts as they can get their greedy little hands on
Anyone local to me that could 'show' me what they are working with would be awesome.. I haven't ridden in any coilover cars or in many through rough road conditions
