Hmm. Hard to play favorites here. Probably my fog light install. Gives the car a better look and extra lighting. Im a fan of fog lights on any car.

Projector retrofit would have to be my #1 mod on my car/truck.

Sway bar removal, front and rear.

Unrestricted suspension movement is a good feeling.

I understand how the suspension is designed to work.
Once adjusted correctly and tested, it can be a really fun car.



IMO, those who use a very stiff anti-roll bar to reduce movement, just don't understand the suspension enough. I just see more benefit in using the camber/toe change to round a corner than relying on sidewall deflection and slip.


I shouldn't really say it but, how confident are you at taking on/off ramps at triple digit speeds?
I have no reservations with mine.

I am, but we shouldn't encourage that kind of behavior. Remember iminhell has a pact with the devil so he can do unnatural things with cars and such lol
