Is it possible to have comfort and performance or are they a trade off?
I plan on rebuilding my suspension this winter and I like the smooth ride. To get a smooth ride do you have to sacrifice handling? Is it a give and take or can I compromise and have both?
Here is my plan.
Replace body bushings
Cut 3/4 coil front 9c1 springs, rear impala springs with air bags
F Body front sway bar, stock rear sway bar, replacement bushings and endlinks
Monroe severe shocks
Complete front end rebuild
My goals are a smooth ride, lower the car to the Impala height, and if possible increase my handling and stability. By replacing my components am I sacrificing comfort for better handling? I hate the bone jarring pot hole rides of firm suspensions.
Do springs and shocks primarily determine the 'smoothness' of a ride?
