Alex - I'm super ignorant about tuning suspensions, but the previous owner
of my '87 avant replaced the stock springs with some from a V8 plus added an
ALU strut tower brace and Boge Turbo Gas Shocks.

While I can't speak for what a stock 5000 feels like, this car is nice and
tight, with a sporty ride that isn't - IMO - too harsh, and I feel it
handles great especially compared to my '89 100, which has much more of a
damper ride that I can only describe as a "luxury" feeling. The 100 also
lists like a Spanish Galleon when I corner hard and fast in it! LOL!
