I have no experience with springs/shock replacements. I DO own a 1996 WS6 TA
and can tell you that the WS6 suspension components are a big improvement
over the standard TA-Z28 suspension.
The items I have modified, and you didn't mention, are Sub Frame Connectors
and Strut Tower brace. The addition of these pieces has improved my handling
significantly even over the WS6 suspension. I highly recommend them.
Specifically I used the Hotchkis SFCs and 2 point STB. The SFCs fit PERFECTLY
and were easily welded in by a local shop.
