Good decision. I'm currently waiting until after my 2500 mile drive from Ohio back to CA before I install my Koni FSDs and OEM sport springs... and Hotchkis sways. My car will be loaded with all my stuff, too

Funny how the rear of a non-sport car rides at what I think is an OK height, but the front just looks way too high. I just put 18" ET38 wheels on my car too, and the wheelgap is killing me too!

Oh, and if a spring/damper change is anything like it was on my Miata, it's definitely a job you'll only want to do once. And if you're paying someone else to do it, it's definitely a job you'll only want to pay for once.
