The ST front struts are surprisingly super firm, so I might have to dial the Konis up another half turn to try and match.

One thing I have found out about all this, is that the stock touring dampers are so underdamped, it's pathetic.

The Handling suspension dampers are surprisingly stiff, imho, and I am really curious as to the comparison between them and the ST's...I can't ride in my car for more than an hour without back pain (though not overly fair to say considering I broke my back a few years ago).

I really need to take a ride in one of these Handling package Ti cars, and see just how stiff they ride.

I wish I had one of the engineers that worked on the ST at my disposal, so I could ask these types of questions.

One of these weekends, we should.

Anyways, screwed up another wheel tonight. Hit a trench in the road coming around a dark curve that some road crew dug for a gas line and didn't fill properly. Tire is fine, but I ended up bending the outer lip. Inner barrel seems OK, but what the hell, man. I can't catch a break with this car.

Wow, you really have crappy luck with those wheels. That really sucks because those wheels look awesome on your car I inadvertantly curbed one of my rears the other day

Either way, if you want to meet up some weekend then just hit me up with a pm. I'm ordering my spacers this week (finally), so if you want to wait until they're installed then that's cool too. I just want to see your car in person
