I have Dinan springs and Boge gas shocks with 16" BBS RK wheels. The shorter springs with the standard length shocks are a great compromise 99% of the time...you get a reasonably comfortable ride and much improved handling. However, the risk is that the car will hit the bumpstops over very large bumps (mine only does this on one huge bump on I95 at 80mph - at 65mph it's fine). I'm happy enough with my setup not to change it, and would only consider Koni adjustables as a possible replacement.


I have rd springs with Bilstiens sports.The ride is great bit the bilstiens hit realy hard on potholes and the car is little bumpy at times. Im thinking of going boge but Ive seen alot of shock lenght talk and i just dont get it. Any Ideas
