Just replaced stock springs and shocks with OEM springs and Bilstein HD's. Also replaced thrust arms/bushings, lower control arms, and sway bar links. New Dunlop SP 5000s on stock 15" rims.
I am happy with the way the way the car rides and handles. Much improved handling. The ride is definitely firmer, but not harsh. A good compromise, I think.
I considered stiffer springs. Think that for me it would have stiffened the ride too much as this car serves double duty as a freeway/family hauler that frequently finds itself on the mountain twisties.
