Autox suspension??

I would like to put a Q out there for anyone that has raced sts or the like and could recommend any good suspension for a ZX3. I descided to give the focus a go this year and put my normal racer on jacks for the season. I'm running a watercooled stage 3 and stock shocks ai'nt gonna cut it if I'm going to be competetive.
Thanks
Finally the weekend fastlane is here!

Two suggestions,

IMHO, best thing to do is grab SVT suspension all around. Struts, coils, stabilizer bars, SVT alignment, maybe a little more camber up front. The right set of tires, you are VERY fast....

2nd suggestion would be the Eibach full kit. Again, stabilizer bars, struts, coils. The whole package that was engineered to work together.
