I live in NY with VERY bumpy roads and I want to drop my car and get as much comfort as possible. I dont really care about handling or slamming my car. I just want to elminate most of the wheel gap and have a comfortable ride. I dont have money for coilovers the most I could get is PSS coilovers or springs with adjustable shocks. Should I just get HR springs and keep my shocks as long as possible or just get the PSS coilovers. I dont know how comfortable these coilovers are but all I can do is adjust the height. Any recommendations?

I've searched a million times. People's opinions vary so much, so Im looking for opinions on people who live in rough areas like NY.

spubar.... i live in boston,,,,quite possibly the ****tiest roads (age and weather) of any city...... got my HR springs yesterday..... am thoroughly satisfied with the ride.... not too bumpy....nice and flat through turns (not that I get to run thrgough many windy's up here). ...... the drop I'm hoping will settle over the next month....as of now it's not quite low enough for me

it really depends, if you want improved handling without the cost, i say go with springs, or H&R cupkit for good bang for the buck.

Go with a coilover setup with adjustable dampening. KW, PSS9, or Ground Control are good choices.
exacto.........u have the option to smoothen your ride, plus u get the option if u ever need to slam your car.........just set your car on minimal drop for now on the softest dampening settings.......gotto love coils

Does some one offer adjustable coilovers both for height(I don't want my car slammed at all, just want it to corner better/flatter) AND adjustable shocks either dampening and/or rebound?

I worry about even lowering my car at all since I hate the scraping sound going over potholes... But as I get more used to my UUC Sways, I'm feeling more and more the limit of the stock SP.

Thanks,

Matt, do you have coilovers by any chance? If not, do you have a problem with speed bumps and what not around Boston?

Thanks,
