still no shocks available though. As with the S.A.M. springs (that I own) IPD said their springs would work fine with the stock shocks. But as I've said before lowering springs really push your stock springs to their limits. Speaking from experience, I would wait until someone comes out with a matched set of shocks & springs.<BR>

I would have to agree, i had IPD/TME shocks on a 2000 s40. This thing very rough on the road. I do know the difference between a good set-up and a poor one. I own a 1990 Jetta Gli with a full coil-over system and the ride is excellent. I now own a S60 T5 and I plan to use Heico sport suspension since it is the only one that comes with struts/shocks<P>

I agree with you guys, I lowered my old car (Solara) with just the springs and found out my car bounce on the highway or speedbumps and I finally ended up paying for the struts. I wish there is a TME, SAM, or Heico dealer in Vancouver, Canada so I don't need to order parts from the States or from Europe.
