Suspension after Spacers

Hi all! I put spacers (20mm F, 25mm R) on my 07 6mt perf package last year and I love the look. I noticed immediately that the suspension felt different. The car felt like its less damped, and every small bump is so noticeable. I switched to my winter tires, same feeling, and back to the summers now and I still notice it.

Has anyone else with spacers noticed this? If so, is there anything I can do to get the car back to feeling like the stock suspension? If not, could this mean my suspension (original parts, 70,000 miles) is ready to be replaced?

Remove the wheels and re-torque the spacers, they may have settled a bit from driving.

How many ft/lbs are you torquing them to?

Thanks for the idea! Iíve been using spacers for about a year now, and re-torque them after the initial installation, and then when I swapped to my winter tires and again when I went back to summer tires this year. I donít think this is my problem. I also use 90 foot pounds, to answer your question.
