Ride quality is slightly rougher - of course - but not terrible, i have the firmness set halfway between firm and soft. Even railroad tracks still are not bad to ride over at any speed.
I honestly don't mind a rough ride. My parents owned an Audi S4 with some stiff as hell suspension, and I loved the road feel. Even on long trips and casual driving, it keeps me aware of the road. The only thing that bugs me would be the sound, but I always listen to music so it'* not a problem.

I'm hoping to get some new suspension on my car soon, but I want to get it done right from the start. I'm going to do everything at once (sway bars, strut tower braces, struts, springs).

Oh and your car looks 100x better and 1000x sportier. Good job.

that ride will get smoother over time, when i put in the FE2 in my SE it was very hard and nice. then it got softer.

But WOW That looks SOOOO much nicer now man

Great job, and IMO, i think that height is dead on.

Damn I thought I had a 4x4

I bet you'll gain about 10 mph on the top end too.

I am hoping to score some 18s... unfortunately with the new baby in the house mod-money is hard to come by. I am considering buying a set of 04+ Maxima wheels (stock 18s) until i can get the cash together for some aftermarkets
