Hmmm...I must be doing something wrong :) ...been running 29921 on the '91
200q20v for the last 3 years.  I love it...though admittedly, the wife
would like a different (softer) ride.

The ride is a lot stiffer (paired with Bilstein HD) and the car drops only
about 1/2" to 5/8" (my goal:  less then 3/4" drop).  While the ride is much
firmer and I suspect the wear and tear on other parts of the car
accelerates, I still feel the car has too soft and floaty a feel in the
rear--but this may be more the shocks than the springs (needs more rear
rebound damping--front could stand a tad less compression damping).
