Hey
What is the best way to set up a car's suspension that is on 19's? Personally, I think 19's look killer on a TA, BUT the "stance" has to be right on to achieve this.

Any advise (and pics :) )are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

How much more weight does the 19s add in the rear? Usually more unsprung weight, you want more compression damping

My car is a DD that will never see a road course, but maybe a 1/4 strip once or twice a year.
I am really leaning towards the Strano/Koni spring shock combo, but with 19's will that close up the wheel gap and lower the car enough to keep it from being too high?

There is a black TA with 19" Forgestars on this site with a great setup, I'll just PM him.

Thanks guys

I have 19`s and Koni 4/3 shocks , still on stock springs.
The wheels fill out the wheel wells perfectly ,my cars stance isnt like a 4X4 either , could use some lowering but its OK for now , I was actually about to do the hose mod in the rear today , and maybe use the lower perch on the Koni`s in the front , I think that would be a good DD setup , however I will lower soon as I want no wheel gap at all.

And my car is a DD , always has been , always will be , just so you know ..

How are we supposed to know what you consider too high? That's your opinion. I suggest searching threads that post strano spring stance pics.
