    Cheezy swears by h&r
    Says it drops 30mm which is 3cm, would it drop a bit further after the springs have settled?

    Would wait for some aftermarket bilstein struts and shocks.

    Precisely. I swear by Bilstein dampners.

    Tighter springs with stock soft shocks doesn't sound like a workable combo to me...

    Yessir. Most people have no concept of what a good set of dampners really does. I bet if you put Bilsteins on with the stock springs it would be night and day different.

    no.. if you are BBW yes.. hahaha..

    for me good combo for comfort ride, is good stiff shocks and a bit soft springs.

    Agreed to both. However, stiffer shocks with softer springs will probably wear the shocks more quickly.

    I am Kind of offended by this comment. I understand what a difference it will make. My reason is since I bought this lovely gem 6 weeks ago I have logged 3467 miles. I am bouncing down the freeway, bouncing down the street, bouncing over railroad tracks, bouncing even after I get out of the car. LOL

    Not trying to Flame or cause an issue. I am trying to find anyway to stiffen up my mirage, the bouncing has a very close to uncontrollable feeling at freeway speeds. Add that to the ridiculous body roll and it gets hairy at times.

    Just sayin!
