Soo many regrets...

But it's the journey, right?

Indeed unless of course you have a plan from the get go.

If only there was a place where an enthusiast could gain the insight and wisdom of individuals that have pursued a similar course...

The IPD springs have a good ride height right out of the box, but they will sag quite a lot after a year

It’s on my “list...”





Do you think the OP is upset by thread high jacks?

My new springs are 325/225, is that “sporty?”

Well you can have a handling improvement with a good ride. Or, you can have a handling improvement that sacrifices ride quality. The second choice can give you a huge handling improvement but some passengers might not like the ride anymore.

What are you looking for op?

They are a good compromise for a handling improvement with stock ride height. Real handling upgrade means giving up more ride quality and using much stiffer springs.

I noticd that dependng on where th 1229337 spring is listd it may show differnt diametr:

Tasca shows 14.2 mm

https://www.tascaparts.com/oem-parts...spring-1229337



Partscontainer/ Newparts shows lesjofors 14.5 mm
