Suspension - what do I need?
« on: August 22, 2012, 10:16:35 pm »
Hello folks.  I know the subject of fad has been covered at length but I am a tad unclear and seeking guidance.   I have a standard Abarth 500 with tmc which is a London town car. Every now and then the crashing ride really bugs me, and if I understand correctly, fitting the koni fsd dampers to my otherwise standard car (ie retaining standard springs) would improve things considerably. 

Would someone be kind enough to point me specifically to what I need to buy re koni dampers and where from. When I google I get alsorts of different permutations and costs.  I have no particular interest going to the dealer if this can be done cheaper / better independently.

And if my understanding of these things is not correct, put me right!

Thanks a lot.
