    I think the only way to tune out our body roll is with spring rates somewhere north of wanting to perform any street driving with them. While I am amazed at how well my car still rides on the street and highways, I don't think I need to crank it up any more.

    Bruce, some of it is due to the design limitations of the MacPherson strut design. Just turning the wheel side to side causes "jacking" which causes the inside turn side of the car to rise and the outside turn side to fall.

    Mine is surprisingly pretty nice on the street with the stiff springs and lack of any bushings. It's firm but it's not at all uncomfortable or kidney pounding like a stock SVO suspension with FMS C springs.

    yeah, but you have mega-upgrades under your car... and it DOES sit flat...
    That may also been because you didn't have enough grip on the tires to make the body roll

    It does sit flat when there is traction but yeah, it's definitely the GR40 setup that does it.
