Yes, I know I'm in the IX section lol. I was surprised to read nando's comment, and responded accordingly. I realize IXs have different front suspension, but general suspension principles will apply regardless.

What? H&R Sports work very poorly on both RWD and iX cars. BTDT.

It doesn't apply because even stock, the RWD cars have more travel than us. Lowering 1.25" takes away like half the stock travel on an ix.

H&R Sports + Bilsteins on an ix here in MI. It's bad. Still daily drive it though. I also have solid M3 CAB's which I feel had the biggest difference in ride quality over bumps. It's almost a relief when winter rolls around and I put my soft snow tires on that seem to absorb a lot of the bumps.

BTW our roads are TOTAL SHITE here.

LOL... It does actually.

For ANY lowered car, doing the extra effort to preserve suspension travel vs. reducing travel makes ALL of the difference between the stereotypical tooth chipping ride and something that's stiff but livable.

My dad bought a lowered E24. It looked great, but rode like shit over big bumps because the PO or whoever lowered it hadn't done anything to preserve suspension travel. A trucker ran a stop sign and took that car off his hands. He bought another E24 that he's running with M6 springs and Koni shocks set full soft, but kept it at stock ride height because the prior one was so bad.

I run 440/550 and it’s a perfect balance imo


Drive Tastefully!
