    Default Is there anyway to stop the crashing over holes/bumps? (19" wheels)

    As title, I've got the 19" VXRs fitted and the car really crashes over potholes and bumps in the road. The car is on standard sri suspension, would upgrading to eibachs and bilsteins sort this? Did anyone here have this problem sorted?

    The eibachs only lower by 15mm on an sri I was lead to believe, still I think I get you. Trust me though, I do my best to avoid potholes but on the roads these days it's next to impossible to miss them all!

    So the eibachs/bilsteins offer no improvement? I am a bit surprised by that.

    Well I have had people say to me that the ride seems a little better after I replaced the shocks for Bilstein B6's. But I don't feel it, just improved the handling for me really.
