All things being equal, the reason that ride quality improves with coilovers is due to excessive chassis flex.

Well, this is why I backed away in the first place. I've seen plenty of upper strut mounts cracked on cars with stiff springs... and those were cars designed for coil springs. When I think of perching my car's weight on points that were not designed to carry those loads, it gives be a bad feeling.

I'm going to see what I can get from a torsion bar setup, as my goals are simply comfortable, yet responsive. I like to use my car for long trips... so I don't want anything that will beat me up from spending a full day in it.
