I'll chime in for support for a 50 also. I hate feeling the drivetrain swing like a pendalum at low speed or moderate shifts and would love a stiffer mount. However, I would at least want a decent balance in stiffness and vibration.

X2 on the sport springs! I had a set on my 2001 ZX3 and loved them. They do a fantastic job at picking spring rates that are livable but offer excellent control. Plus the lowering was just right and very livable for daily driving.

Are you listening SteedaBrandon?

So we have a torque rod and a solid molded mount, correct?

I would like a better Motor mount.

I would also like a nice 2 inch drop spring. Everything out there as far as springs is like 1.4" at most. and I don't feel like paying $1000+ for coilovers to get 2 inches of drop.

Maybe in a race spring for those who want that extreme drop, but the Steeda springs I had were about a 1" drop which made the car look great, still provided the suspension travel needed for great handling on unpredictable road surfaces, and some clearance for daily driving.

I am not looking to SLAM this one like my other cars since this is my wifes daily but looking at measurements it seems to me even with the ~1.5" drop there is still some gap between the wheel well arch and tire. SO I was looking for something with about another 1/2 inch drop. Coming from the mini truck and import world were low is the norm I was looking for a little more to eliminate all the gap.

If nothing comes out I will probably just go with the springs available. then underframe bracing. I jst feel the focus has to much body roll and seems a little floaty at speed I want to stiffen it up.
