Those freeze joints on 93 north of the city, or the delaminated top coat on route 1 with coilovers would be a disaster.

you'll save a few hundo too.

So would a spring/shock combo be a softer ride with a 19" setup than coilovers?

My wheels are being powder coated and I assume it will ride hard with oem suspension.
