Hi everyone I wanted to change the stock suspension on my 13 3.8 Track to something that rids smoother and softer and turn it more of a GT daily driver instead of a track weapon. Needed someone to steer me the right direction to look into after options.

Used set of coils and shocks from a Non-Track model will net you 10-15% softer suspension. Pair with 18" rims and a touring tire with reasonable sidewall flex like AKGC said, you'll have a smoother ride without doubt.

You will *not* find aftermarket suspension kits with lower spring rates. You could get adjustable dampers that can be set very soft, but the stock spring perches are a static length, go too soft and you'll be hitting your bump stops more often and the car will become prone to wobble/pitching on uneven services.

Air suspension is an aftermarket option that can possibly net supremely comfy ride quality, at a price.

amen bro, I have a '13 track it rides pretty stiff I changed wheels to 18" 45's aspect. the wheels saved alot of unsprung wt 19.5 lbs and stock 19's are what 32lbs. if you try to let too much air out the light comes on. I think you can get away w/32 lbs. All I can say is be careful what you ask for unless you have good dental coverage. I weigh 270 & can jump on the door sill & the car does not go down. I don't believe I am saying this but it might be too stiff for the street. My previous car was a 1972 Z car w/ all delrin bushings.

My 2012 3.8 Track rides like a tank. All stock track suspension. I love it though and I'm 74 years old now. I spent a lot of years with a Triumph TR6 and I swear you could feel a dime on the road, it was so stiff! I live in Las Vegas and we have great streets and roads. No really cold weather or snow so no potholes!

The BK2 actually has softer suspension than the BK1

so the BK2 base will have the softest suspension.

BK1 track/rspec will have the stiffest.


What I have is a BK1 premo (base suspension) and track sway bars. I have no complaints, besides my dad re-studding my winters with basically studs for truck tires.
Literally tearing pavement up lol
