    Best spring and shock set up????

    Hi guys,

    Just wondering what you would recommend for a spring and shock replacement. I was looking at the BTS kit from Bilstein, but I heard thats not a very good kit.

    Any input is appreciated.

    The car will be a weekend cruiser, not a daily driver, drag racer, or auto x. (I say will be cause I'm in the process of reviving it. 2002 CE that was wrecked) I would like the car a bit lower and I don't mind a stiff suspension

    In that case...

    Strano springs with Koni shocks. Best overall performance, and rides very nicely for a lowered car.
    That is what I am running on my car. Expensive, but worth it.

    Thanks for the input, where is this set up available? Can you get it in a kit, or do you buy the springs and shocks separate?

    Talk to Sam, he will get you the correct set you need for your car.

    2nd recommendation for Strano

    I recommend giving Sam a call and discussing what you want your car to do. Based on my interactions with Sam, he will ask several questions and discuss options with you. FWIW, I am very happy with the springs, shocks and sway bars he recommended.
    Good Luck and let us know what you decide and how you like it.
