FC front strut tower brace, FS rear strut tower brace, Eibach pro-kit springs and dampers, Progress 25mm rear sway bar, Poly rear coil spring isolator bushings, poly front swaybar bushings, 15x7" wheels that are offset more to the outside, currently running Hankook ventus RS-2's

coming: KYB AGX dampers, and poly bushings in the front lca's, and possibly the rear trailing arms and rear lca's. And new tires for spring will be Falken Azenis 615's

As it sits, even needing an 4 wheel alignment for rear alignment issues, it still handles like on rails. Took some corners the other night at around 50 mph easily not even trying, that others have probs taking at 40 mph.

I'm running the full eibach pro kit w/ front and rear strut bars. It was a strangely coincidental upgrade being that one of my front springs broke the day after I ordered it. I love it and my only complaint is that the shop I had install the bars didn't grease them properly so the front squeaks. I'm fixing that in the spring though.

I guess that the only options are:
-SVT or a complete eibach, koni or hr, not just the springs but also dampers, 'cause if you only got springs (koni, eibach or hr) your poor long stocker dampers will die soon.

I have vogtland sport springs, KYB AGX sturts and shocks, and FS strut tower bar. I love the handeling and the ride is still good. I like the fact that the KYB's are ajustable! I would like to upgrade my 16" wheels and tires to 17".

If you are going to do it, do it 100%

I had some Drop Zone springs on stock shocks. Dumb, dumb, After 8,000 miles it rode like terrible s**t.

I have full Eibach and I love it.
