Suspension and Bigger Alloys

After reading a lot of threads on compromising comfort.
I would like to find out from all.Will the ride still be uncomfortable with aftermarket springs and shocks?So far the best combination is said to be, H&R and Bilstein or H&R and Koni.

I have 16" standard Alfa alloys.Am considering getting 18" only if its worth it ( long time plan in March-07).I will first upgrade my suspension.My suspension is quite rough at the moment.I dont see the point of changing from 16" to 17".I want to change to Zender Dynamic.Mainly for better stability, to have a unique Alfa and to add a bit of value for resale.My next car will be definately be German.

My first priority is getting everything am not satisfied with fixed first.Remap,suspesion, new exhaust and checking for anything that should be replaced.My current alloys are rather battered.I want to have reconditioned and maybe that will make me keep em.The car should look good after lowering.

Re: Suspension and Bigger Alloys

Hey mate, take a look at "Lowering a 156" thread in the same forum. Might be bit of a help.
