    Best comfortable suspension upgrade

    Hi Guys,

    I ve been running some TTRS alloys that are 9J 18inch. The grip is much better but I do get a choppy ride. By the way its an s Line so they are known not to have the best ride.....

    My Q is what suspension upgrades are you folks using? anything that provides a more planted ride at speed? and anything that is acceptable on low speed i.e. not choppy.

    Any help is appreciated...

    I'm running on Koni Coilovers, which are suprisingly comfortable on 19inch rims, and were even more comfortable when I was running on 18inch

    I'd have a look at the Bilstein B12 kits mate. They offer a subtle drop but are still comfy. The Sportline kit is the 1 to go for really as the pro kit will hardly drop an S Line much.

    depends on how low you want it as well, what ET are the rims, if they are too wide, then you wont be able to go much lower or else you will be scrapping them tires lol

    Thanks guys will take a look at the recommendations....

    The wheels are Et54 (me thinks).....but i am running 15mm spacers to help the alloys stick out....I think they stick out a bit too much so would change the spacers when lowering commences...

    If your running 15mm spacers on those wheels then you should be able to go down no problems
