Re: 03 vert

you need to replace the bushings in the IRS with: http://www.fulltiltboogieracing.com/

and lower the car with a stiff spring like H&R race and go with at least coupe (03/04 cobra coupe) shocks/struts as they are stiffer than the verts)

This is high on my priority list, but since I dont go to the track its not something I have to do ASAP.

oh and you had best have an IRS brace.

Re: 03 vert

I have the a brace but the first one failed me with my stock tires it was a steeda brace it was metal and ended up bending from the wheel hop and cracked the rear diff cover and that wasnt very fun to replace. I now have a billet brace and a set of 315 nittos on the rear and i havent had a problem yet.

Re: 03 vert

sounds good, from everyone Ive talked to the delrin rear end bushing kit (do NOT go with any polyurethane crap) is amazing when done for track or for autox.

OH, not sure how I forgot but if you do not have full length subframe connectors GET THEM YESTERDAY! lol they make a HUGE difference in wheel hop, and just normal drivnig (95% of my creeks and pops left after subframes)

Re: 03 vert

many companies but I pesonally would go with maximum motorsports full length or griggs full length. Other companies have them but generally they are weak and are not very good.

YOU must go full length and ONLY weld on (not bolt on) and they must be welded on on a drive on lift (well they can be done on a 4 post but you MUSt make sure every seem in the car is correct before you weld when the car is in the air which takes time~ a drive on is the fastest way)

You can get powdercoated BUT they have to be sanded where they are welded so get bare steel and coat the **** out of them with rust proof paint.
