Whats ur suspension setup?
 
Im in the process of buying a suspension kit for my car and like to hear some of what people have on their rides..I did a little searchin about some products and I think what I am going to try and do is have the bilstein pss and have TMS swaybars. Id like to get the UUC sways but ive heard they make alot of noise?? If there was a way to fix that Id like to get those. I highly doubt ill be doing any track days so thats why I wont be getting the pss9's but my car is pretty much my daily driver other than my bike, so id like to hear if this setup would be to stiff or harsh for everyday driving. I understand that it wont be like Oem and I do expect it to be a bit rough but i dont want something that is going to make my teeth chatter all the time i hit a bump. Let me know what u guys think, Thanks

eibach coils @ lowest settings
tms sways w/ adjustable endlinks

the ride is GF approved. you shouldn't have a proble with the set up you're going with.

I have H&R sport springs and Koni adjustable shock/struts with the Rogue Engineering Rear Shock Mounts. No sway bar upgrade yet though :(

:woot: I replaced my OEM Sports Package Suspension set-up with the Eibach Pro-System Kit with included new Sports Springs, Dampers, Shocks and Struts. I wanted a little harsher and stiffer feel that wasn't too uncomfortable for the street. Additionally I wanted to extremely lower my bimmer to decrease the body/tire gap and tighten up the cornering. The ride comfort is fantastic even over rough roads and the car corners at high speed like its on rails. The drop is one and half inches all the way around and looks pretty damn good if I to say so myself. Just my two and a half cents worth. Happy Motoring...
:thumbsup:

still on oem sport suspension... working on pss9s now :)

UUC Stage 4 - Sachs shocks and matched springs (more comfortable ride than H&R Cupkit IMHO), with UUC sways. Had my sways in for over a year, and with hard driving they still don't make any noise....for my money, the best set up this side of coilovers!!

Dinan Stage one. Rides a little firmer the OEM. The Dinan dropped my car a LOT lower than I expected...almost too low.:dunno:

H&R Cup kit
Eibach Sways 2 way adjustable


Rides like a champ

What else would I have to buy when im getting a suspension kit such as the ones you all have? What i mean is, do i have to get front control arms and bushings...and/or the rear mounts? If so which mounts should I get?

I have the same setup.. I have had it for about 11,000 miles now, no noise, love how she handles. I haven't had any control arm issues either (knock on wood..)

I have the TC Kline TrueMatch S/A Coilovers with Koni Yellow shocks. The springs rates are 450lb/on front and 500lb/in rear. I'm working towards TC Kline Camber Plates as well. The kit works well on smooth as well as bumpy surfaces, it's not too harsh. I have no bouncing problems either, which most people complain about with the Bilstein kits.

The TC Kline S/A Coilover kit comes with RSMs and you can choose the spring rates that you want. The fronts increase in increments of 50lb/in and the rears in increments of 100lb/in. You can also lower the TC Klines more than the Bilstein kit, I'll get a picture of my car later. It's slammed. :pimpin:
