I changed my suspension to megan coilovers and car rides extremely rough. I would like to know if this is the way megans are suppose to feel. And also what possible could be busted on the car that would still make it ride rough. Also what would be some comfortable suspension setups thats sporty but also rides smooth.

By rough do you mean it rides stiff? Try lowering your damper settings. Make sure to get the car and aligned and corner balanced as well.

The car will ride stiff regardless of the settings.

Coilover suspension is generally meant for aggressive handling, so they will ride stiff, especially if you are comparing them to the original equipment. The cheaper coilovers don't usually have much adjustment.

In most cases, yes. The possibilities are nearly endless for strut and spring combinations, which include Evo struts and spring with some modification. Search the forum, there is a lot of good info posted.
