    Stop throwing tomatoes.... I've searched and haven't really found an answer to my question

    I recently picked up a 2010 FX50 sport and am really wanting to take an inch or two off the stance. Although I keep it in sport mode, I like the idea of softening it up when the wife in the car. I was planning on keeping stock shocks and add H&R . After reading posts here, many say it is worth it to step up to coilovers instead. Great. I love coils. But I automatically assume I am losing the CDC option, correct? With coils, would I leave the shocks unplugged? Will it throw any warning lights on? I'd much rather throw on the springs and call it a day but if ride quality suffers too much then i would bypass it.

    I believe you will get a light from unplugging the CDC and lose ability to adjust, but I can be wrong.

    To be honest, you can make the ride more comfy and handle better with the right coilovers/springs vs. the stock setup, even with the 50S cdc suspesion.

    Thanks for the reply! I mainly only want to take the gap out which makes me lean towards just springs. But comfort wise, I would like to change out to coils but will lose the CDC which I really do not use anyway. I am curious, what others with the FX50 with CDC have done
