What will you upgrade your suspension to - springs, coilovers or leave it stock?

Personally, I'll decide once I drive it. If the suspension works for me and the ride height is not too high, then I'll leave it stock. If not, then coilovers for me so I can get that perfect ride height year round.

Springs all the way. I hate the way coilovers blow out so fast. On a heavy car like this they will probably not even be available.

I heard that the Regal comes with some adaptive driving control... Interactive Drive Control System, I think it's called. I wouldn't want to mess with that - I figure that if I change the suspension, it would mess up the computer, and there goes my warranty :eek:

I don't know much about cars so I'd pretty much leave my Buick the way that it is. Is there any more information on the Interactive Drive Control System because that sounds pretty interesting and would make for an interesting drive in the Regal.

I agree. With that tid bit of information, I may have to change my lowering plans hehe. I don't want to mess with the warranty or the computer system that the car has. If this Interactive Drive Control System is available on the Regal, then obviously it has been tested to provide the most comfortable and enjoyable drive possible. I'm going to leave my suspension the way that Buick intended it to be on the new Regal.

FWIW, Eibach says they're developing springs for the 2012 GS on their site. Reads "currently in development."
