: I went with Bavarian Autosport springs and Boge Turbogas shocks. The car retains a very nice, smooth ride while handling and looking MUCH better. I plan on doing a full write-up with pictures in a couple of days.

: : What is the difference between all the springs out there? H&R,AC schnitzer, Racing Dynamics,Bavarian,and eibach I really just want to lower the car without really changing the ride quality. I do not want something that is really hard or harsh. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. TIA b
I got the Bilsteins and they are way too stiff. If you are more concerned with ride than autocross style performance, go with Boge original style struts and some lowering springs. I would do it that way if I could do it over.
