I'm liking the sound so far, it's definitely better than it was.

Hey everyone, Not very active, but that's gonna change..

So yeah, Drove my car around today and noticed something, I need more power
and I need more corning ability.. So, Christmas money going onto...

Rear Sway bar, Lowering, new Sway bar link in the front, New Spring Iso's in the front and rear just because If I have the springs out I might as well replace them anyway..

Replacing some bushings that need replaced, Tightening up my steering as best I can, even if it means new inner tie rods, etc.

Anyone have any other idea's on how to fix up my handling?

Bump steer, caster camber plates

After everything, drive for so many miles (someone please comment on how many) before you get it aligned so it will settle

How much does the bump steer benefit and what exactly is it helping or reducing?

no need to buy new Isolators...just toss out the old ones and don't install new ones...easy 1/4" drop and they don't make a difference ride wise.

As for the bumpsteer kit...

It's a spherical rod bearing to help the tie-rod end on lowered cars. You'll want to get the X2 balljoints first though, that will help the most.

Look underneath the front of your [lowered] car, youll notice how the outside end of your A arms angles upward, and notice the angle of the tie rods, how they are not in line with the steering rack itself. Stock, everything is perfectly lateral.

Stay away from offset rack bushings and the bumpsteer kit until you get the X2 balljoints or something equal (you're just looking for the longer stud).
