OK, I'll agree that the FE1 is no performance suspension, nor was it meant to be. Further, it was never meant to be driven by you Andrew... :P It says right on there, "No Freakin' Haro".
But seriously folks, that car obviously has a number of issues, starting with:
- It needs new shocks.
- It needs end links and maybe even a sway bar.
It likely also needs other suspension work at that age. It'* fair to assume that there has never been any maintenance on that suspension.
My car has FE1 suspension, and while it'* no performance suspension, it'* maintained and works quite well for it'* intended purpose. No bottoming out, no nose dive, and no lifting of wheels upon hard cornering. Just the smooth ride that it was designed to give to the primarily older crowd (and on-the-road salesmen) the car was marketed to.
All that having been said, I will someday upgrade when I start asking more from the car.
