Just finished rebuilding the front suspension with poly bearings and doing new shock bushings. After putting a few miles on the front rebuild, the front clunking is gone BUT the front shocks now appear to be leaking and the front end now seems "light or soft". So, the options now look like: Rebuild the konis Buy new konis Buy Ohlins, QA-1s, Bilsteins or Morisy, (sp?). Since many things still need to be done to get the car "right", I've opted for the adjustable QA-1s at $152.39 from Summitt. This also will allow "improved spring rates, even though it will require doing the rear - which is cool. I would very much appreciate advice on increased f/r spring rates. I have cruised some of the archives and found: 300/300. 325/275. 400/350. 450/400. A few general notes to narrow/guide the selection: 85% "quick" street driving, 15% track. 16-17 inch rims with 40-45 aspect ratio hp street tires, (not yet purchased). I am willing to trade a significant amount of comfort, (softness & compliance) for quick & precise handling. I am leaning toward 400-350, F/R. Is this likely to be excessive? Since I am doing a 1400 mile trip, (maiden voyage) on the fourth, I need to get things going quickly. All comments apreciated. thanks, chris p.s. now have 4 stock koni bushings, (new from Dennis McCann) $50./set.
