It's a change, believe me. You can definitly feel it taking sharp turns. The Progress is great on a daily driver.WickedlyFastST said:But doesn't the ST have the 21mm sway bar??? The progress one is only 1mm bigger... Don't think that would change that much over stock.
To achieve the best possible handling, you wanna stiffen the chassis of the car as much as possible. That's why stiff, mild-drop springs and shocks coupled with large sway bars are best. They help you control camber when cornering by reducing body roll. If you're cornering hard and the car is as balanced as it is when drving straight, the car will be able to stick a corner at the grip limit of the tire. A wider (not insanely wide) tire thats got a stiff sidewall construction will help cornering ability, as well as having the right camber setting (one that allows all of the tread section to contact the road surface under cornering). Performance bushings and at least for our Focasses better swaybar endlinks can polish off a very nice suspension setup. Then you can take off-ramps with Minis, Vettes, and Elises.
