    I'm unemployed, what should I do for suspension?

    As many of you know, I was in the process of getting together a new suspension setup for my NA. I currently have: practically new H&R race springs, and lightly used koni sports shocks. I was planning to buy new bumpstops and tophats before installing anything. I have access to an alignment machine for free.

    I lost my job, a bit before I was planning to leave. I have money, but really ought to not spend any on silly car stuff, it will be a while before I am making decent money again.

    If the stock shocks weren't way too blown out, I would just roll around stock for a while.

    So these are the choices as I see them, feel free to make other suggestions.
    roadster love.

    If you've already got the Konis & Springs, why not install them w/ stock bump-stops? You'll likely be fine. If you're hitting the stops, just shave a "ring" (you'll see what I mean) off of the stop.
