created the thread Tightening the suspension...
" Hello BB,
For the last couple months, ive felt like my car is driving very 'slack' and 'loose' and 'sloppy'. While i have a set of coilovers on my wishlist (probably BCs), i wanted to know what are some things that i should either replace or upgrade in order to tighten up/repair/improve the suspension, chassis, and the 'feel of the car'.
Im not entirely sure what bushings or other things i should be checking to see if they are busted, either. Im a super noob when it comes to non-coilover suspension bits. I have a feeling that simply replacing/repairing certain parts of my suspension/chassis would help the ride feel as it is now. Should i be replacing any bushings or similar items at 40k miles? The only maintenance ive done is oil every 4k miles, air filter, oil filter, tires. Thats it (besides what the previous owner/CPO center did. I got it at 33k miles).
So, let me know what you think! I just know my buddies M3 feels 1,000x more planted/stiff/connected, and thats on the M3s stock suspension ( i know, apples to oranges, but you get the idea).
