I'm still undecided.

I really liked the coil overs. They felt awesome. They handled great. The car looked awesome. But they were really stiff. I'd been running them for some time and it was starting to get to me a bit.

The pinks aren't as low as I'd like, however the car does still look good. It definitely handles awesome and they're not as stiff, so my evening traffic commute is a bit smoother now. I think I like the springs better just because I commute more than I track or race, meaning the springs are a better fit for me than were the coilovers.

edit: still on stock struts

sounds about right. if you had the ground controls in a softer/lower spring rate, do you think that would fix the comfort issue?

I'm not sure. As I understand it, the Ground Controls are not height adjustable independent of the travel (I think I'm saying that right), so basically, the lower the car is, the less amount of space the spring has in which to do it's work. I think if I had a softer, maybe progressive spring on the car, that the comfort issue likely would have been resolved. I don't know how that would have affected handling though. I'm not real technical with this stuff, though I'm slowly getting better.

Depending on how the spring rates would have worked out though, my wife may still have been unhappy, not sure. I never called Ground Control to try and figure it out (because I never even thought to, honestly).

She's happy with the ride of the springs though, which means I'm happy

Here's my pride and joy. I have been working on this for a little over a year. This is just some of what I have done. Let me know what You Guys think. I did all the work to it except for the wheels, all from my Wheelchair. Enjoy

The is from LNR Enterprises in Orange County. The link www.LNRonline.com goes around $345. Not too many companies make a good lip to fit the 02/03 Wagons.
