Suspension advice wanted please!

Hey crew,

Spring is here and it's time I dropped my 09 'vert but wanted to see what the consensus was regarding how far to go and what worked for you.

Here's what I'm planning and nothing is installed yet -
the car is sitting on stock 17 Bullitts
H&R SuperSport springs - 2" drop
GT500 strut mounts - supposedly helps get rid of the dreaded 'knocking'
Ingalls strut tower brace
and finally I am thinking to add either an adjustable panhard bar or a new set of Koni STR struts/shocks while I'm at it.

Anything you all can recommend or feel is not needed? Too many options out there (bumpsteer kit, control arms, sway bars, coil overs, braces, etc) and I don't have enough cash to throw at it all. I'm wanting to do the work at once and not have to keep adding stuff.

Daily driver, no track days for this car.
Looking forward to hearing back from you and thanks!

V6? Does that year have a rear sway bar? If not, I'd make sure that would be in the plans too.

I can't tell you how much it improves the handling.

I had thought of a rear sway bar take-off from a GT. I don't think the 09 V6 has one so hoping a GT one would be cheap enough and be a direct bolt on...thanks for reminding me!

You will need the adjustable panhard bar for sure to put rear back in line.

I think all convertibles come with a sway bar but I may be wrong....but yeah you'll need camber bolts too if you get GT500 strut mounts. Or just get caster camber plates

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. Did you install all of your suspension mods at once or was there a particular order things went on? I'll be waiting another half year if I have to keep scraping together everything you guys mentioned!
