New suspension time, but which ones? Help! 147
I was informed at my last MOT that I was probably going to need new dampers on the rear at least. I've always wanted to upgrade the terrible ride on the 147 (It's an '01 pre-facelift), I'd have liked to go for the Koni/Eibach combination, but having just bought a house I can't stretch that far, especially as it's cambelt time this year as well!
So I'm going to have to go budget. There are a couple of German sets on ebay, but they look like they might just be too cheap. Has anyone had any experience with them? Another option is some replacement Bilstein dampers (£100 front, £160 rear). I'd like to improve the ride, maybe even lower it a bit (I know I'll need springs as well).
Anyone with any ideas/advice?
