Suspension Options
 
So I have a 10 SES 2 door 5 speed daily driver. 100 miles round trip. Currently at 64K miles on the clock. Next summer I'll be looking to replace original tires, and suspension. I wouldn't mind a little lower, but nothing crazy. Already have my lowered 2002 Camaro SS. Just want something with a little less roll etc. I love my Koni's on my SS so that would be a great option if its available for my model. Thinking of maybe a 1" drop not much more. Maybe a swaybar upgrade if you think it'll help. Bushings. and then of course springs and shocks/struts. I don't need autocross handling. Just a little better than stock but nothing that's going to kill me on my daily commute. What's your opinions!? Also going for a bit better look. Thanks

FRPP Kit. There are several posts out there about this already. Do a little searching and you will be amazed what all you find.

As far as swaybars go, you could upgrade to a 21mm sway bar. They were standard on the SVT focus and they can be found cheap.

There are other bigger swaybar options out there too

Original tires at 64k ? I'm on my 3rd set at 72k.

I've done searching but was still a bit confused on the topic.

Yeah, I drive all highway so pretty easy to do. I rotate every 12K. I'm pretty easy on this car.
Thanks guys. Guess I'll start searching for a FRPP kit to purchase.

I've driven quite a few highway miles myself and haven't gotten more than 30k out of a set. I rotate every 5k when I change my oil too. [dunno]
