The kit is already fitted. After the few dozens of km's I'm building an opinion...
First impression was that the steering became just a bit heavy, just a little bit, nothing special.
Second impression, the all body feels more solid! The old suspension was really in bad shape. I also changed the front top triangles.
We feel more the irregularity of the pavement, a bit bumpier, but I think it's because I'm not used to
- will it get better with time? One important note is that, I was afraid how it would go in really bad roads, (stone cubs pavement) - it feels much better, comfortable, harder but not harsh at all! Going over potholes got much better, I don't get that terrible knocking sound from the suspension anymore.
Handling... improved 100%! I don't feel the need of 17" anymore. I'm on 16" Sport with old tires and they stick to the road fantastically well! Curving became a pleasure again! No body roll, very secure and predicable.
Took 2.30h to change everything, with no surprises, like sticky bolts.
So far, so good.
I'll update this topic sooner, with more opinions and some piccies.
The look is much better too...
