Anyone running Vogtland shocks and springs? I was on there website and noticed they offer complete kits like tokico not just springs like I was led to believe. So is anyone out there using one of there kits? How does it ride?

I looked on their site and didn't find any for the Thunderbird.
I have a 97 with 3.8 and will be swapping the motor next year for a V8. Should I do the suspension for the V8 now or do the one for the 3.8 now and then swap components next year when I do the swap?

Only thing you need to worry about are the springs.

I sent an email to vogtland inquiring about the shocks and springs kit and discovered that it is not actually a vogtland kit at all. The response from vogtlandsuspension.com says that the kit featured on the website is the tokico hp spring and shock kit.

not the same car, but hope this helps; i just replaced the stock springs and kyb shocks (lookes new, just coated with oil from them leaking) with vogtland springs and bilstien sports on my bmw 635 csi. i couldn't be happier! i know the bmw is about 1000 lbs lighter, but still, they are a great spring/shock combo.

remember, those who fail to do a job right the first time, always end up finding time to do it right the second time!! don't cheap out. buy quality parts and be happy with your work.

I'm getting vogtland springs, I may just end up getting their kit with shock and springs that way I'll be using a decent set of shocks until I can afford the luxury of konis

I've got a set on my '89 SC and absolutely LOVE THEM!!!!! They're not quite as harsh as the SC springs, but when you get into the turns and more "sporty" driving....the Vogtlands handle just as well as the SC springs. Gonna put a set on my '97 CAT later this year whenI tare into the front cross member.

I'm over the idea of vogtlands and am getting the complete tokico advanced handling kit from shox.com
