We have a lot of erosion problems around La Jolla and there are many potholes and uneven spots in the road, so there are times when I curse the new setup as we get jarred around a bit. However all that is forgotten in those La Jolla Gran Prix moments, making all the green lights and taking the corners at top speed in a narrow lane. There are compound handling characteristics between the suspension, wheels, and tires, and I am certainly no expert on which component does what, and by how much.
The dampers certainly lower the stance in general and improve the appearance greatly. I believe they give it a firmer feel when accelerating, braking and when in the turns, and you can really feel the road when its rough.
