Hoping for some experience and advice.
Want to slightly firm up and reduce as much roll as possible in my currently stock 86 Cabriolet. 14' wheels, standard tires. Don't want to Break the Bank <<<$$$
Cabby's are much heavier than tintop MK1s, hence the advice I've been given (including from Neuspeed directly), is that mk1 lower or race springs won't work., too low, particularly rear.
I have found an ad for AST Springs, that does state Cabriolet, but it doesn't speak to spring rates. I am not familiar with this product, but understand them to be quality.
Does anyone have AST Springs? On a MK1 or MK1 Cabby?? Comments?
In terms of Shocks, thinking something somewhat cheaper, but wanted opinions or advice please. Looking to keep a daily driver / aggressive weekend fun level of ride comfort.
Finally, although the cabriolets have more metal cross material as part of the frame buildup to compensate for the lack of roof, I am still wondering about anti roll, or even sway bars. I'm thinking rear only, as I am not looking to tighten up the front to the point of (more) oversteer tendency.
Has anyone added Anti Roll? (can you even do so on a MK1 Cabriolet?)
Thoughts on Sway bars?
