Hi all ... just bought a new car this evening (stupidly excited ... pick it up Saturday ... will put a pic up in the gallery forum), and was wondering if anyone would have any recommendations for what suspension I could put on it, as the only complaint I have at all is that it's a little wallowy in the corners.

I've seen a few names floating around - Eibach, Hirsch, Abbott Racing, Two Stroke to Turbo, amongst others - but I don't know if there's any kind of consensus on what's a good choice?

I'm looking for something that's reasonably sporty, while still being relatively comfortable in town and on the motorway. I realise that that's the ultimate nirvana to have a perfect balance, but at the moment the suspension feels like it's all comfort and no sport!! I guess if there was a rating of 1 to 10, with comfort being 1 and sport 10 I'm looking for a 6/7 level of stiffness with the current standard 9-5 being rated at about 3.

All help greatly appreciated

You mean these springs and these dampers?

Any idea the sort of time it would take to fit? I'd probably use CGS (think that's their name) to do it if I was going to, as they're linked to the dealer I bought from (Just Saab) and I've heard nice things about them.

Also - and please excuse my ignorance here - is there any point getting new bushes as well? I'm afraid I'm a little unclear as to either what they do or how the improve the handling.
