With the new springs and low profile tires I feel like my ride quality has only decreased slightly if any at all. I'm happy with it, I don't think you should worry about it.

Haven't noticed any change to the ride quality at all. The difference it makes aesthetically is amazing though.

It's just bit more firm but the improvement in handling is proportionally much greater than the increased stiffness.

There is, however, a section of road I drive on frm time to time (HWY 117/Curé Labelle thru St-Thérèse for the Montréal crowd) that is just horrible and feels worse than with the OEM springs. And of course, the Mercier bridge... :-(((

Cheers!

hahaha.... that part of the road is simply useless........ the worst being at the light in front of ST-Hubert just pass the train rail (from Blainville).... it's like a dozen of speed bump!
I'd like to lower mine but that kindda road make me think twice........ and we have a lot in Québec!!!

i have H&R sport springs on my rsx and it rides real nice, better handling.. you can take turns at 60 that you used to be able to take at 40. its lowered about 3-4 inches and its still sinking.

Even on long road trips from Toronto to Detroit, it's still great.

Relax, this is one of the things forums are for. Be kind to your Forte brothern. I hate when people on forums act like a-holes. Forums are there to connect people and help others who can't find what you can.
