I have coilovers on my car with adjustable dampers. For road use I run the dampers at the lowest of 24 settings. If you start to drive enthusiastically with the dampers on the low settings you get a sort of an underdamped sensation. The dampers cannot keep up with the springs and the car feels a bit loose.

I suspect if you just change your springs you will only experience this sensation right at the limit, especially as normal fast road springs are nowhere near the spring rates (550lb) I am running.

I had H&R's on standard dampers before I went to the coilovers and never had a problem.

Roops.

According to Eibach, I don't need to change the original shocks of my 1988/M-3, becuase they were designed considering it. What you think..........?
