So since a lot of us on here are trying to achieve a well handling street car, that still absorbs bumps. I figure it would be good to share suspension setup's. I will go first-

18mm torsion bars (stock 914)
19mm sway bar, set to second hole out
Bilsteins (sport)
Stock Bushings
205/50/15 tires

200 lb springs w/coil-overs (3.2l motor)
no sway bar
Bilsteins (sport)
225/45/15 tires

I do have a six, so my spring rates in the rear need to be a little higher. This combo for me seems to work really well for a street car with occasional track use. It could benefit from maybe 19 or 20mm front torsion bars. Btw this combo feels "softer" than my GTi, yet it still handles well on the track (for occasional HPDE use).

Interesting I have heard if you order Koni's you can get them made for a 914 (since it is different weight than a 911).

What works for you guys?
