OldGray320i Define ride quality, I guess. If it's a matter of you're "bouncy" now, then Koni's or something like it should make it better, if a bit stiffer. Most of what I've heard on Sportlines is that the ride is pretty good - I think I've only heard or read of one saying "bouncy".

Tucson also has awful roads; the outlying areas are much better, though, so only about half my time is spent on awful. Thankfully.

Call me paranoid. But my sportlines have been on for less than 4 months and im thinking of replacing my shocks and struts with konis. I have pretty crappy roads where I live so I'm hoping that ride quality will improve somewhat

Juicedz Those running sportlines on original factory shocks, at what mileage do you foresee the oem shocks needing to be replaced?

that looks really nice. how much of a gap do you now have? I was hoping to do 18" wheels with the .8" lower from Eibach and some spacers. Think itll fit w/ or w/o camber arms.

I just dremeled the mounting holes exactly 1 to 1.5" down so i can move my flaps up??? Rather than getting smaller flaps or hoping they won't hit things or drag. Only did it to the front ones though as where I live I get really deep snow and packed ice.

They are 8.5"s wide so they fit really well in there. But yes I did install adjustable rear camber arms and had her alignment corrected. Not since the new 18"s though. I couldn't be more pleased with the wheel fitment, gap, and spacing, coupled with the sportlines.

Thank you! There is definitely a noticeable difference between stock suspension and sportline springs. I bought her brand new in 2012 and installed the springs at 1500 miles. I have since then put 36k on the odometer. I have not noticed a significant or noticeable decline in ride quality over the years. I still love them. They are still very drivable and are still wifee approved. I would recommend them to anyone who wants a noticeable drop, but still wants a practical ride. I never scrape anywhere. But I do obviously take extra precautions on steep driveways.

With all that being said, I have a funny story to share. My wife and I were driving down highway 101 to go to Monterey. On the highway there was a change in pavement and a dramatic ridge where the two types of pavements had separated and lifted. I didn't notice it until I had hit it at about 70 mph. The hit to the suspension was so jarring that my windshield wiper handle was forced down and my wipers turned on by them self. Lol. Luckily my wheels were not bent or damaged.
