If you make the springs stiff enough that you don't have body roll, the ride is not a little, but MUCH stiffer over small bumps. You will literally feel crosswalk paint.

I think PASM just sounds like a bad idea if you want to lower. I don't think there has ever been an OE self-adjusting damper in history that was receptive to lowering springs. My 190E with its self-leveling rear dampers comes to mind.

seriously man, no wonder you get banned so much. you can't stop attacking people publically even those that call you "friend." Matt was your biggest supporter and fanboy and you attacked him like everyone else. I'm done. have fun living your angry life.

You think you attacking my personal projects isn't any different than me attacking your lifestyle choices? Have you ever thought about how I feel when you make jokes about my car?

Matt purposely hid McDonald's food wrapper trash inside my van, and did things to my car without my permission. Umm, yeah I'm going to be mad at him. Kalim kicks me when I do stuff like that to his cars even when I put the stuff back. Matt didn't even bother to take the trash out of my car, and made me fix the problems he caused, not to mention didn't pay me back for the hour of work I missed because of what he did.

Seriously Frank, when you make fun of something of Miles, what makes you think he's not going to do the exact same thing right back at you?

What gives for people making jokes and criticisms about me, but can't take it in the opposite direction?

There's a difference between making a joke about something (i myself have 3 non-runnng "project" cars) and flat out saying someone is wrong and has no knowledge about what they're talking about when they've done the research. I'm obviously critisized for my thought processes and decisions which I'm fine with. I don't start taking it personally until you start indirectly calling people liers when you CLEARLY don't know what you're talking about.
