Maybe I need to go take a ride in someone's Lincoln to regain my appreciation.
That said, I'm thinking about doing the research on replacing the suspension with S8 springs & dampers as I prefer a little stiffer feel, I dunno. Any thoughts on this?
I have never owned a car that did not soften up in warmer weather...unless you have a car with active (constantly adjusting) suspension, it's impossible for it not to change with temperature. Cold metal is stiffer (springs) and cold oil flows faster (shocks).
OEM S8 springs/shocks is the most expensive possible route you could take, unless you find a low miles S8 part-out.
