I have to say that TIRES are the first thing that you should buy. They take off like a good 2 seconds off your times if you go with R compounds. Then work on struts/shocks and springs.

I wouldn't get springs. When you do you'll be bumped up one or more classes.

Last year I ran in H-Stock. This year I am getting springs and strut tower bars and tires of course. I am not sure if I should H&R springs or Eibach Pro springs. But I think springs are going to be great due to the fact that Foci seem to sit tall. Depends if you want to stay in stock class or go to Street Prepared or even STS.

I feel STS is easier than SP. But thats just my opinion. Don't have to buy R's in STS.

Falken and Kuhmo make GREAT tires for autoXing. I am considering getting some R compound tires as we up in AK only drive for like three months of summer.
