    Hi I've got a 96gt , I'm thinking of getting a Bilstein BTS suspension kit . The car is a daily driver, and will never see the track. I'm just looking to lower it a little, and improve the handling. I also have a set of maximum motorsports caster camber
    plates to install at the same time. Any one have first hand experience with this kit.

    How much does that lower it? I know the blistines are great shocks/struts but id be tempted to combo them with some H&R Supersport springs.

    Thats what I'm not sure about. bilstein says 1 1/2 inches. which sounds like what I'm looking for , but they give no info about the spring rates. After talking to MM they suggested H&R race springs, I'll have to take a look at the super sport springs.

    the supersports give a great stance.
