    This is my wife's DD. She's a little librarian looking woman and loves the suspension. To quote her "it handles awesome and still rides nice enough. Exactly how a sports sedan should drive."

    The tires do make a difference, I'm running 255/40-19 front and 285/35-19 Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 tires. When I first did the suspension the tires were wasted but I needed to do the drop first to make sure the tire sizes were good. They're perfect with some lip rolling. After the tires were replaced the car is damned near perfect.

    Honestly that with the Brembo upgrade makes this car fantastic and fun. I'd like headers and a tune maybe remove a couple of the resonators so it sound a little better but not loud and this car will be perfect.

    Thanks. When I get them out again in a year or 2 I'll keep that in mind.

    PPV strut and shock replacement. Other then the New Mounts and bearings for the front, any other needed parts like, bumpers, boots needed? What about the nuts and washers. Going to keep the stock springs and everything else.

    I installed PPVs at ~25K miles. The strut bushings and bearings were replaced years ago so I didn't need anything else. Stayed with stock springs also.

    I did need a caster adjuster as one side shifted with the new struts. The caster caused some pull to one side and the alignment machine showed which side was off and how much.
