What about the KYB AGX adjustable dampers? the H&R Race springs should work with those.

I doubt this would be a good combo. H&R Race springs have very serious (high) spring rates. While the AGX's are good they were not designed for the spring rates of the H&R's and would be seriously stressed.

upgrade tires from P195 to P205

I own a '05 ZX3-S. It's getting close to tire time. I have 15" aftermarket rims on car. Could I jump up a size to P205-15's. Tires are same price. Would this offer any advantages? Thanks

Are there other options, such as subframe connectors to bring the entire chassis together? I'm fairly happy with the overall road manners, just thinking in terms of autoX or track days of what might be a weak link.
