suspension setups...

well im looking onto getting a new suspension setup for my 9-3 come spring. its currently stock, minus the open air intake and boost controller. ill be picking up a set of 17" vig. rims and wrapping them in stickys so i figgure why not do the suspension at the same time. just wondering what everyone has / suggests.

its a 1999 9-3s sedan, daily driven through new england so im not looking for anything too stiff or low but i want it to have a nice stance and good holding cuz it does see some track time.

pics would be helpfull too.

thanks

I have Eibach springs with Bilstein HD shocks. Most people get the Konis, but given that you might never adjust them, and the Bilstein's are stiffer you might look into them. With the Koni complete kit, you get Vogtland springs which I have heard mixed reviews on.

I got my Eibachs from a local retailer for $200 and the Bilsteins for all corners for $409 shipped from shox.com.
