Yes Mark sells both and they made a big improvement. The lighter spring and the rod ends eliminate the bind in the bushings and allow the suspension to really work. I set the shocks on full soft and then increase a couple of clics at a time until I'm happy with the ride and suspension control.The rod end lowers and shocks made that much of a difference? That’s one on my list
Consider cutting the door edges for more arm room.If you don't have them they are a pretty inexpensive way to make driving more pleasurable. The difference is very noticeable.
I am watching this closely, I have an early MKII that is going to be repainted this winter and I want to make as many improvements as I can while it is apart for paint.
The spherical bearings are listed for the 2015 IRS. Are they needed for the older IRS, which is what I have? I think the old control arms already have rod ends.Bob,
Do you mean the spherical bearing inserts (or something similar)

or something else?
Changed a fun car into a track car with WAY better manners.
After many weekend trips, I have to agree. Even just a little bit bigger trunk would be great. I also travel with a full took kit. My next build will have a tool kit mount in the trunk.My dropped trunk was right up there as well! Makes it actually useable!!
