Eibach pro kit with lowering springs and tuned front and rear shocks made by eibach. Bbk caster/camber plates. Offset rack bushings. Poly control arm bushings-front and rear. Eibach big swaybars, front and rear. Changed the handling dramatically. Much more grip. Love the way it handles. Poly swaybar endlink bushings. Car is a little stiff but not too stiff.

Im pretty well familiar with suspension setups and how to set them up for specific applications. Im asking who has what shocks/struts with coilover conversion setups. Trying to get a feel for who likes what and why.
