all of my cars have been daily drivers, including the bronzit.

if i was looking to save a few bucks but still get quality parts:

Bilstein HD shocks - $452
H&R sport springs - $229

total of $681 plus shipping (from tirerack.com)

why DON'T i run this setup on any of my cars ? because it's only an extra $170 and i can have the height adjustability of the GC coilover kit as well as pick my spring rates. i dislike how non-adjustable sport springs lower the car, i would much rather spend the extra money to be able to set the car exactly how i want.

Exclamation Caveat emptor

I have a belief in buying anything, that has stood me good over the years
Quote:
Only buy what others have tried & tested extensively
That's why I do not buy the latest car, TV etc.
Of course everybody will try covering their purchase by telling you how good it is, but after a year or 4 the novelty wears off & the owners become more honest toward their product...
I am nobodies product-tester
