I believe even the straight line tracking was affected. I felt as I was driving on a straight country road, the car didn't require as much constant minor correction to stay in my lane.
Thanks for the write-up.

Is it possible that some or all of the increased stability was due to an incidental or deliberate change to the front and possibly rear wheel toe angles? If no re-alignment was done, surely changing the struts would allow the toe to change slightly? If the toe and camber angles were set to a spec after Koni instal, were thes angles measured before removing the stock parts?

If others experience the same stability improvement with new FSDs over new OEM struts then the likelyhood of incidental alignment changes being a significant factor would seem diminished, but with one data point, it could be the new shocks, or it could be slight alignment changes or a combination of both...
