My 1992 2.6 has hit 113k all with the original suspension and I think its time to plan ahead to spring when I will be restoring/upgrading the entire system. Here is what I want to do and some questions I have for you guys. I want to plan and start buying now so I can get to work on it march/april

This is what I want to do... I like to have a better handling system closer to the one on my 944 but with the Monoblocks. Problem is if I leave the height the same it will hurt the ride quality but I dont want it lowered too much. So I really need much advice.....

Rims

17" AMG Monoblocks but what offset and size is best ??

FRONT

Bilstein Sport inserts (yellows)
New Control arm bushings
500E Sway Bar

Here is what im unsure about...

Vogtland Springs / Stock / Sportline ( if I can find them ) Which do I choose ?
Any other front componet I should replace ?

REAR

Bilstein Sport Shocks (yellows)
Bushings

Unsure...

The multilink system I found a kit made by meyle for $200.00 ( german made ) is this ok or should I use genuine MB ?

Vogtland Springs / Stock / Sportline ( if I can find them ) Which do I choose ?
Any other rear componet I should replace ?


Also wanted to mention the car is not a daily driver so I have alot of time to tear down and rebuild things.

A good number of people that swap in the thicker W124 V-8 bars in the front eventually find that the stock sway bar brackets get yanked out due to the extra stress.
