Is there a stock set up that is greatly improved by means of better dampening without lowering. I will go no lower!

I can't stand that my right passengers weigh† and or the road grade has so much influence on the direction of the car. I inflate the tires a bit more and this effect go away. I'm inclined to take my tire pressures 3 or 4 pounds past the recommended norm of 30/33. but!

I already noticed that there is a loss of damping from the shocks and a resultant tire bounce because of the increased tire pressure. This effect seems magnified during the winter and during the sumer I can get away with it beautifully.

Clearly this car didn't come with the shocks and setup which are appropriate for me.

subaru offers a stiffer spring in their SPT lineup

see: https://www.subaruge...products_id=626

this wont slam or lower the car much
but will add to performance and capabilities of the car

shout with questions.
