new suspension?

Hey guys,

so im thinking about getting new suspension for the M soon, the current suspension is getting a little sloppy and i think it is starting to rub on one side. so im asking what would be a nice set up, i thinking a race set up since comfort isnt a concern for me in the car so anyone with any advice of companys and mayb prices i would appreciate the heads up ! thanks in advance!

-Hutch

ps sorry if this is worded poorly its 3 30 and i have been up since 7 haha.

As "X" mentioned they're all good but shop closely re: Konis. They make a couple of different grades and the "base line" units are a glorified stock units (just compare shaft/piston size) I had Konis & just replaced w/Bilsteins sports and the diff was night & day.

i really like my bilstein sport shocks with h&r sport springs but if i had to do it all over again i would go with a nice set of coil overs. probably from ground control.

yeah i think for the most part people who got shocks and springs wish they woul've just put in a little more money for some coilovers. I'm really happy with my Bilstein sport/ H&R race setup. but camber plates, adjustable control arms are a must. and yes you should definitely replace the RSM's FSM's, ltabs, rtabs and so on and so forth
