    Default Koni FSD + H&R springs

    I've been thinking about this for a few days now and I know that most folk go for the Eibach / Blistein combination but I just thought I'd run it past the members and see if anyone had tried this combo.

    Background is, I have had me Siggy 2.8 Elite for just over a year now and never thought much of the handling. I've been meaning to do something about it for ages but haven't got around to it yet. I'm not necessarily looking for a firmer ride as such, really just less wollowy handling in the corners but I don't wan't to rattle the teeth out of my head so for this the FSDs sound perfect. I prefer the stance of the H&Rs to the Eibachs too.

    My Saab drop links are in the post and I was thinking of getting the Powerflex front poly bush set too. Should I spend the money on the rear set too and get it all done at the same time?

    I do need to replace the front springs since one has broken (although only a little bit and it's perfectly drivable - just rattles a little) but the shocks and bushes are all fine so I could do this gradually. Or should I stop over thinking things and just buy the lot?

    I haven't found anyone yet who has tried the FSDs with the H&Rs so if anyone on here has tried this, I'd be really keen to hear your thoughts.

    That sounds like a vote for the H&Rs then, cheers Paul.

    Cool, let me know how it goes, would be really interested.

    I'm off camping for a couple of weeks tomorrow but I'm pretty sure I'm going to order these when I get back so feedback on the first couple of weeks with them would be good.

    Now has anyone tried the FSDs?

    Mine's on 40mm drop H&R's with Bilstein B6 shocks. Handling is incredible, it drives like a sports car on rails going round bends, but isn't too harsh for normal driving.

    If and when I ever get another car, it will also be getting H&R's fitted 100%, no other brand will get a look in.

    Well, it's been a manic couple of months and I just haven't had time to do this but I'm just about to order my new parts and get this done for once and for all.

    gsi 3.2 how did you get on with your H&R's?
