sport or non sport shocks
I need some advice on shocks and springs. I have a 97 LX without the sport option, with stock shocks and springs. The shocks are pretty worn out and need to be replaced. I was pretty happy with the factory ride height and quality but wouldn't mind a slight improvement in both.
Here are the options I am considering.
1. keep existing set up, buy new non sport shocks
2. Vogelang spring with small drop. I've pretty much ruled these out. I think they will be too stiff for me.
3. sport springs and sport shocks. It sounds like these will cause the car to sit slightly higher than the non sport springs which I don't want. I know cutting springs is generaly a bad idea but it is possible to cut a small amount off to have the car sit at the same height as it would with the non sport shocks?
4. keep existing non sport springs, buy front Sport shocks and rear cobra shocks. This is what I'm leaning towards right now.
Does anyone run the sport shocks without the sport springs? Any thoughts on how this compares to the sport springs/sport shocks combo.
