Looking into upgrading the suspension in my 03 Aero wagon, or at least getting the parts ready so I can do it in the spring (what a coincidence eh? springs in spring).
I've been searching around and trying to do my share of research, but can't actually seem to find any aftermarket springs that are listed for the wagon, they all seem to say sedan only. I'm assuming this is just because of the weight of the wagon and the load rating of springs. I know their are people out there running wagons with aftermarket springs, I guess I'm looking for some feedback from them.
I was thinking of going entirely with with Eibach stuff, as advance auto has 25% off suspension parts until the end of November, and I could get all 4 shocks and the springs for $615 shipped. However the Eibach springs are listed as being for the sedan only.
The other option I am considering is the Koni/Vogtland kit from GS. It's a bit more $$$, and I've heard some mixed feedback about the Koni sports and some people saying they are a bit stiff, however they are adjustable. GS doesn't specify wagon or sedan, but I'm curious if the springs will hold up to the extra weight of the wagon.
OR... do I just get any springs I want and then spacers to keep the ass end of my wagon from sagging?
Just a bit about me and my wagon. I rarely load it down with a lot of gear, and even more rarely have people in the back seat. Once in a great while I'll go on a ski trip with 3 or 4 people in the car and gear to go along with. Maybe 2-3 times per winter.
Thanks in advance for any info. Hopefully this hasn't been hashed out several times already, but the search feature on TSL leaves a lot to be desired (sorry Scott).
