2008-2011 suspension kits (Photo's included)
 
I just wanted to make a thread all about suspension kits. From springs to full kits like the FRPP. Also coilovers.

Here how's it goes. Post a picture of your ride(side shot) and list a full description of your setup and rate your suspension 1-5 (5highest) on the following subjects:

Price
Comfort
Handling compared to factory
Issues after install
Quality of parts


I'll go first

H&R. Coil overs track edition
Front: 2.75"
Rear: 3.25" (springs cut)
SPC rear camber bolts
Dominic adjustable sway links
CFM tubular arms
Steeda RSB

Price:$2k
Comfort: 2 of 5
Handling: 5 of 5
Issues: 4 of 5 (minor clunk from sway links)
Quality:5 of 5. All were great parts

Just to help clear things up and level the playing field where does the stock suspension fit in? What do you rate it compared to your new set up?

ride: frpp-5 Stock-5
comfort: frpp-5 Stock-5
handling: frpp-5 stock-3
look: frpp-5 Stock-3

i am running the fswerks upper stress bar so it tightens the steering a little bit

FRPP kit with massive front and rear strut bars and steeda RSB = Amazing. Feels nice and soft with normal use, but as soon as you take a quick turn you'll fall in love. Was almost T-boned a few weeks ago and barely managed to swerve out of the way (by inches) Worth every penny at that point.

ive noticed that some are saying there kits are only $400-$300 and also saying that the handleing is a 5 compared to stocks know my question would be are they a good set for road race??
