FRPP's spring's/strut's/shock's= Toulsey Ford

Mind you, my car has no ABS nor TC unlike the SVTF; so I guess I'm looking for a suspension that has mild undertones of understeer without any oversteer, unless induced by trail braking or lift off oversteer...
You really won't have any issue's w/ either setup. Your strut's/shock's are probably worn out= more body roll/ brake dive. Lowering your car lower's the center of gravitiy= Lot less body roll & brake dive= you will find your brake's work better, instead of having a lot of weight tranfer. You will find you need more work on your car to get lift throttle oversteer w/ this FRPP's suspension.
