Thereís more to life than the drop, I guess. Maybe Dinan springs give a little bit better handling? I got them for ďfreeĒ so Iím not going to complain.

Iím not saying the shocks are worn, but Iíve noticed quite a difference in control since I brought the car here last year. Perhaps the bushings didnít do well in the humidity, perhaps the dampers just havenít liked sitting. I figure I have to start fixing things somewhere, might as well start with Bilstein, since they apparently work as good or better than stock.

Some other guy told me different last year:

Regardless, the car has Dinan Stg 2. Thatís what his build sheet says. Sway bar looked stock when I crawled under the car.
