The best kit is ours. Ha!

All kidding aside, we make some awesome stuff right here in central PA.

Stock will not improve but bring you back to square one when the car was new. My mods list the parts and my car drives and handles amazing.

Re: suspension overhual

What purpose does the vehicle serve - straight line (drag race), going around corners (auto-x, road race), or just an all-around daily driver?

Re: suspension overhual

I want the car to be able to handle like a autoX car but i want to keep it as much of a weekend driver as i can.

Re: suspension overhual

Are you doing the work yourself? I started with simple upgrades and basically keep it as a work in progress. Going with the poly bushings was the first step and i just kept going until the car was at the point i wanted.
