Couple questions

Few questions about performance and suspension mods. Now that i can start saving up i want to first get my quarter panel fixed (it was keyed before i got it) then i want to get an exhaust (borla). After that i want to move towards performance mods nothing crazy though its a DD. My car is bone stock exception of appearance mods. I plan to get gears and maybe a tune. Is it "necessary" to do suspension mods if im going to do gears and a tune? Yes, i know it will do a difference but is it really necessary to do suspension mods? P.S. I have an auto ive been told 4.10 gears are best to go with is this true?

You won't NEED suspension mods after a gear install. It will def help though.

If you accelerate out If a corner too fast you will spin. Under heavy wot pulls you will spin a little bit. Nothing a good set of lower control arms won't fix though

Ok so it is better to do it then not to because it will help.

Lower control arms should be able to balance it out? And what about gears 4.10 should be good for 03 auto?

yeah 4.10s are good. I have an 04 auto and it made my car pretty fun again lol.
My highway mpg went down a bit though. That's only because I live in LA and if your going the speed limit your going waaay to slow. So I'm going like 75-80 the entire time. But if your doing 65 mph you should be around 2500 rpm which isn't super duper bad

Tbh idk lol. I haven't done the calculations. People say that they're mpg goes up in the city, but I can neither confirm nor deny this. Unusually put in 40 bucks in gas and go. Hahaha. But I heave a pretty heavy foot when I drive.

What you really need is a Panhard Bar and a Torque Arm, with Lower Control arms, and some Subframe connectors. It will feel like a whole other car, you will corner and launch so much better.
