lowered. Since the bavauto springs lower you, shouldn't the b'stein sports be the right ones to go with them? I ask because I am apparently interested in the same thing - a little firmer, but I don't want the bottoming out thing at all (live in the great pothole of Massachusetts).

To clearly state: I am interested in bavauto springs + B'stein HDs, but thought that wasn't a good match (and I don't want to bottom out with the sports). Comments?? Anyone??


Patrick's bottom up because they're short. The HDs are equally stiffer but longer.

Short shock + soft springs = bottom.
Long shock + soft springs = less firm, no bottoming.


Oh, not good. Then what would you guys reccommend that's the next softest out there with as much drop that doesn't bottom out with Bilstein Sport/HD?
