: Should I get rid of my Bilstein shocks..

For some Koni Adjustables? :dunno: I know that's i'll lose some money in there, but it seems that Bilsteins may be a bit too stiff for everyday driving.

Are you seriously autocrossing? Are you racing?

If not stick with the Bilsteins. And if you are, you should be able to answer this yourself.

Bilsteins are great shocks. Only if you really need adjustbility and know what to do with that adjustability and are willing to do the testing necessary to find the best setup will D/A Konis make sense.

Eibach.. I'm not too low at all.

If you put in too soft a shock with Eibachs, though, you'll probably start bouncing...
