I run KYB's and Eibachs on my 00 GT.  Use the motor mount spacers to bring the axle geometry back into stock specs and skip the dogbones.  That being said, I have very little vibration with nothing installed at this point.  I have an axle that's been going bad for a while that is causing it and I know it.  I don't mind the ride.  To me it's much tighter than the factory junk, even with the stock 16's on it right now.  A lowered car is never going to be a plush ride.  It's a trade off for handling/looks.  just depends on what you're willing to put up with.


I hated the 4x4 look once I got everything done so I dropped it. 


I believe that the Vogtland lowering springs only drop about .9" so that could be an alternative to dropping it some and keeping the ride quality you want.

These are highly engineered precision vehicles, the first step in diagnosing the problem is to strike the suspected offending part sharply and repeatedly with a blunt object, then re-test.

ZZP offers a set of lowering springs on quick struts (KYB) but the whole set is like $800. The product description claim it doesn't lower the car enough to affect suspension geometry, so while a bit pricey, sounds like its the right combo. I'll look at the Vogtland springs because I think the present height of the car is due to sagging springs. Restoring stock spec will probably lift the car and I don't want that.
