They are one of the best dual-personality shocks on the market. These shocks get rid of ALL of that floaty feeling, way less dive when braking, cornering or accelerating --- no doubt helped by the i-sport springs lower center of gravity and slightly increased spring rate. They definitely ride better than stock and soak up bumps with ease. If you haven't already, ditch the runflat tires too.
yes i have bilsteins on my evo right now. the ride is way too harsh for a daily driver and i'm on stock springs! thats why i have a bmw. i really don't want to make my bmw uncomfortable too, but the floatiness is just crazy now that i'm making 100hp over stock. i really have no idea where the car is going when i get on the gas. it's so disconnected it's crazy. i love it for long road trips and highway cruising, but for anything performance related this car is a joke. i would love to find that happy medium
