The second set, I have the koni yellows with neuspeed race springs (aka super cup kit) This set is a little better than the illuminas IMO. But i also have a rear ST sway bar, and with this setup the car loves to hug the road.

I would say that the first setup is a 7, and the second is a 9. out of 10 of course. Ive had my Cb for a while... i love it.
good to know man....i am actually thinking of upgrading my shocks to Koni yellows this summer when I install my STracing sway bar kit....can't wait.!

I hear good things about koni yellows

I think the 17's are over kill maybe a good fat 16 rim will be more suited to the car.

yeah...the authors definitely made it interesting with big/wide wheels....but 16" are good enough for our chassis.

If anything, for daily use, wider wheels are better than larger diameter...

.932G's! wow, I didn't know my car was capable of that. I guess I under estimated my setup. I've got AGX's with ground controls along with 215/45r17 fuzions so i guess im pretty close to there

the article's car is running sway bars as well as uprated bushings...those will probably give pretty good results...

plus those wide wheels's can't hurt ultimate grip

That makes me want to get a set of 17" x 8.5" wheels with 245/45 17s or 235/30 17s.

Damnit!

good luck with rolling your fenders because you are going to have some serious rubbing issues. also you would have to lift the suspension up more or at full compression your going to rub every thing, sidewalls and the tread.

I have been thinking about this too.

I think I might just be able to squeeze 225's in there without rubbing in the back.

Even if I lose mileage, it will still be better than what I was getting with a stock F22.

Besides, I have 215's now, and they haven't affected economy at all compared to the 195/60-R15 stocks.

I hardly ever drive the beast so fuel economy isn't my priority.

Also I think rolled/pulled fender would look pretty awesome. So I'm ok doing that.

17 x 8.5 gram light 57S either in +40 or +22 offset. That'd be my wheel of choice. With the +22 and severly rolled/pulled fenders, I doubt rubbing would be an issue.

The scrub radius would suck though.

Plus Azenis in 235/40 17 only weigh 4 lbs more than my current 205/50 15.
And they are 8.7" wide.

yea yea i kno bumpin an old thread! blah blah.. haha so i have installed the bushing set on my car in the front so far and im waiting on my rear progress sway bar to come so i can install that and do the rear bushings at the same time.. as for the suspension i was wondering whats the best price for a koni yellows strut setup with neuspeed race springs (aka super cup kit) because im tring to decide between this setup or a full coilover setup.. im doing alot of research and this seems to be the best spring/shock combo.. so price and possible locations for buying?
