    great looking car. I need to go through my book of all the PO's maintenance records to see exactly when my dampers were changed. Im in need of an alignment after the winter and if the miles call for new dampers ill be ordering a set.

    I'm delighted to hear you are happy with your choice, as I had about decided on the same FSD/stock combo and really needed to hear someone else's experience with it. Getting ready to put new rubber on the car but figured I'd do the shocks first and maybe bushings. Mine is a country road that isn't real high on the county's surface quality priority list and it will punish an aggressive driver in a lowered car unless the suspension is super firm. I'll be real satisfied with a new-stock feel and relatively mild alignment - no longer any need for the razor's edge by this graybeard.

    Which Koni package for suspension replacement: FSD or Sport?

    Iím a little late here and you should be good with the FSDs! Iíve been running the Sports for six or seven years and have been very happy with them. I have the fronts at full firm and the rears in the middle. Roads down here in the south are a lot better and livable with the way I have them set. Would have suggested H&R sports on the Springs. Those would give you about a 1/2Ē drop. Iím still running the original Springs on mine at 156K.

    I do need to check my Sports soon though. Getting old and may need to replace them on lifetime warranty.

    This thread has been great! I too am looking to replace the suspension on my ZHP. Same as OP, don't want a rake or too low. Looks like FSD's and stock springs are the way to go. I'd consider the H&R Sports if its a true 1/2" drop and not more. The stock ZHP suspension is very good, but a tiny bit of drop may not be too bad and certainly help the already great handling of the ZHP.

    What kind of logic is that? Bacon from the sky? I will take all. 2 slices of bacon is "just the tip" and I don't play that game anymore. All Bacon, All The Time. If you tune down your bacon allotment, you're suspect.

    I went with Sports and the stock ZHP springs as part of a suspension refresh. Did a 600 mile trip last weekend and all good. Replaced suspension bits that were all original and unsurprisingly completely trashed at 155k. Still am amazed every once in a while at the extent of PO neglect.
