Ride stiffness after Bilstein upgrade?

Hello, friends: I am thinking of this Bilstein suspension upgrade, if it's still made, but I am wondering what the review means when it talks about "feeling the road."
http://www.stangtv.com/tech-stories/...stein-bts-kit/

If that means shaking my teeth loose every time I hit a bump, I may just put the money in wheels and tires instead.

I am coming from driving Lexus sedans for the last 15 years, and the 2010 GT I just acquired is my weekend fun car. I won't be doing any racing, LOL; I just love the lowered stance that supposedly results from the modification, which includes staggered wheels, and want the car to "float" a little less, if that's the right term, on the current factory suspension.

Thanks.

Bilsteins are pretty firm, think M3 ride quality. It also depends on the springs you choose. I think for what you're looking for, I'd do the Eibach Pro-Kit (springs and their shocks/struts) or a complete Steeda package with their shocks and struts too.

We can definitely put a package together for you to make it an even more fun weekend car ... look at what we did with this 2012 before & after ... can do the same for your 2010 (dial it in!!):


You can email me at [email protected] to talk about packages & forum pricing.

Best Regards,

TJ

What do you think TJ, Ultralite springs and the Steeda shocks and struts? I was thinking, based on his Lexus ownership, the softer spring rate on the Ultralites would be a good entry level setup for his car. Lower, but not slammed, and close to stock ride quality, but a little firmer.
