Finally got to test out the difference between the FRPP suspension with the stock suspension and a better mounted rear swaybar.
Suspension Mods
- FRPP shocks and springs
- 22mm front swaybar
- 25mm rear swaybar
- FSWerks front strut tower brace
- Dominant rear camber arms
- Polyurethane bushings for the front and rear sway bar and rear endlinks


























The body still rolls a lot but not as much as before

I noticed my ride is stiffer and I feel the bumps more; hoping this gets a bit gentler in the city since I only have 2-3k on them I rub in the front with 215/45/17 Motegi MR116s that have +40 offset a bit under certain conditions but oh well, hoping fender rolling a bit will help me

wow really cool pics!!!


is there a better suspension setup than the FRPP one?
Of course! But you can't beat $300 shipped to your house for 4 shocks and springs. I believe this setup drops you the least; I was looking for this specifically as Boston roads are not too friendly around here for lowered cars.

order a set first thing in the morning [hihi]

I don't know, I have the FRPP kit. I thought Steeda only makes springs? You would have to get some struts that can handle the lowered stance so they don't go bad quickly. I read the Konis are good for that

is the steeda suspension the best one to get?
Go here and read all the stickies (all the links at the top of the page) If you find something that looks good to you or something you want to know more about, search that forum for those. If you still have suspension questions; start a new thread and you will get some good feedback/answers



To the OP, looks much better! Probably about the most you can do with the FRPP. Good to see some action pics.
