Hi Bernie,

well, i dropped my old Taurus SHO nearly 2" with tokico struts and eibach springs. coupled with full length subframe connectors and aluminum subframe bushings, the car cornered like a mofo but...

rode like a rickshaw ;-)

i don't think i wanna go that aggressive this time around. what do you recommend for spirited driving but also long-ish road trips (like 5-6 hours). i don't plan on tracking the car.

the car had just got new rotors and pads on the UFOs.

the car presently sits on 2002-ish A4 17" rims with Kuhmo ESCTA Sport 2325/45/ZR17.
