Hey all. Finished converting my car to OEM 5-leafs (from monos), CE Slide-A-Link bars, solid bushings in the springs, poly in the frame rails, 1.5" lowering blocks, KYB shocks on all four corners, and stock springs (for now) up front.
The ride quality is terrible. I can feel every slight irregularity in the road. If I ran over a pebble I would probably notice! It's like riding in a paint can shaker. The road quality in Pennsylvania is horrible - that's not helping. On the few smooth roads we have, the car is ok.
What I really want is something tighter than stock but not a race car ride. I knew the aluminum bushings would probably be more than I wanted but they were required by the traction bars.
What would you guys suggest as a good compromise? I have Hotchkiss springs ready to go in the front. I was thinking maybe I would get the Hotchkiss rear springs, ditch the Slide-A-Links, and stick with Poly bushings. What do you guys think?
