I just went for a drive on my newly revalved bilstiens but still rocking my old 550/350 set up. they are valved for 700/400. Night and day difference from before and you can daily on these no problem. The harsh ride is all but gone except for a bit on very high speed compression.

I knew Blindsay was from Pittsburgh when he used the word JAGGOFF-lol. With my superior intellect I confirmed my suspicion by viewing his location under his user name.

that's about 1/2 of a "good kit".

Yep... and yet, everyone knows what I'm talking about when I say "coil-overs with adjustable sleeves"

yes I'm from Pittsburgh, our accent is unlike anyone elses. Was in Louisiana for a school trip one time and various people came up to me and asked If I was from western PA.

and is there any difference whatsoever from sleeves and custom coilovers?

Dude for the 532987435978cock13893-th time, an adjustable collar ("sleeve") IS what people refer to by coilover. Although to get technical, any arrangement with the COIL- OVER the damper (hurr durr) is a coilover.

and a lot of people say lag when they mean boost threshold.

we know what they mean, but the use is incorrect.

Has anyone asked the OP what tires he intends to run? Since body roll is dependent on grip, and grip is largely based on tires the spring rates need to be matched to the intended amount of grip (tires). For instance, springs that do nicely with 14inch all seasons, will not do well with 225 RS3s and vice versa.
