I'm not a suspension guru, however, there is one question you need to answer before anyone can comment accurately. What is the purpose of your car? Drag strip? Auto cross? Road coarse? Street comfort?

Then, our suspension guru's can give you an accurate recipe of what to do to your car.

Re: ok you guys give good info so heres go

It's up to you really...

Obviously different sway bars are going to help your body roll. A stiffer spring will also increase handling, and with the right spring will not disrupt your road comfort.

Personally, if it was me replacing my suspension and I generally drove it on the street with an occasional track outing, I'd make it look good, and count on sticky *** tires for my track endeavors rather than a suspension that will create the proper weight distribution for a solid launch. I'd lower it, match a solid spring with a shock/strut combo that's valved for the spring stiffness, and go from there.

Re: ok you guys give good info so heres go

it all depends on what you want to do, if its just a daily driver... there is no need to sink 10k in the suspension. If you drag race the car... no need to do certain things than an autox car would do... so it all depends on what you want out of the car.

Ive only done springs mostly for my car as I dont drag race it or autox~ I plan to do bushings but thats for wheel hop.

Re: ok you guys give good info so heres go

I wouldnt say theres any basic things you need to check. Just make sure your car is in good running order and properly maintained. A distributor and cold air arent going to affect the way your car runs anymore than the stock components (for the most part). The things I would suggest is making sure you have clean fluids in the car (trans, brake, oil, coolant, rear diff, etc) as well as regular maintenance items looking to be in good order. Things like spark plugs, wires, belts, hoses, those sorts of things. The 302 is a pretty reliable motor, and unless its been absolutely ragged on, you shouldn't have much for compression problems. You can check it for peace of mind, but if compression was low in one or more cylinder, you'd probably know by the way it runs.

Just start modding... replace those old worn out parts with pretty, new, performance aftermarket parts.
