What else do i need to do

Ok, so I'm kinda at the limit of my knowledge on suspension and i wanna know what else i need to do to make my zx3 handle like a dream. i'm already running the saleen/eibach pro kit, with a 25mm bar out back and a 22mm bar up front. I have a Massive Speed front strut tower brace and a FS rear strut tower brace. I just got everything realigned, but I'll be doing another alignment in the spring when i put on new brakes. So what else should i do? And what settings do i need to ask for on my alignment?

Sounds like you already have a great handling setup.
I would highly recommend getting the HTPerformance adjustable rear toe arms.
Not only do they offer a lot more adjustability in the back, but they have other great features also.
Check them out:

Those are sexy :D
Haha, they look like a good deal, hmmm
Anything else? I wanna make it turn in just a bit more through the corners, i love how it feels right now, but it'd be better with just a bit less understeer.

Trying taking out the rear seat and the jack/spare tire. Just taking weight outta the back will help it rotate better if thats what you are after. Best of all its free.

Well, rear seats already out. It's alaska tho, so taking the spare and jack out is totally impractical. I might move the battery back tho to balance it out better.
