When it comes to harshness on the street, its not really about how uncomfortable the ride is for you as much as it is about how uncomfortable the ride is for the CAR. A suspension that is too harsh can DAMAGE your car if used on the street. Many people think that as long as they can live with the harshness of a certain suspension setup that's all that matters, but remember the poor car...

Jeff J.

Say I decide to replace all shocks, springs, swaybars, control arms (and bushings), add camber plates, add Z3 rear shock tower reinforcements, and install all TMS reinforcement kits. What other items are recommended for addition/replacement at the same time? This is a street car that will see a driver's school / car control clinic now and again and MAYBE one autocross a year - no other track events are anticipated.

For about the same amount of money the above items will cost, I can get a complete Bilstein coilover kit or a full JStock setup, but I don't want a harsh ride on the street. A little help please?

Thanks and take care.
