Suspension Mod Overkill?

OK, I read things on here a ton and I am now starting to question my next set of mods since they are hopefully less than 6 weeks away.

I have a daily driver, never go to the track and only drive on the highway about once every 2-3 weeks. Most all driving is in town between 40 and 60 but I would label it as very spirited!!

I have sort of settled on the list below but now wondering if I am spending more than needed. I do want a lower stance and good handling but it the pro plus kit overkill? Would spring set do just fine?

Eibach Pro System Plus (shocks, struts, springs and sway bars)
Steeda Adjustable Street UCA
J&M Extreme Joint LCA
J&M adjustable pan hard bar
J&M Adjustable Caster Camber Plates

The pro system plus is a really good setup from our experience. Solid choices with your control arms & panhard bar as well. Only thing that I would say is not necessary is maybe the CC Plates. For the drop the EPSP gives you and you don't track it too much, save some $ and just use the CC bolts from Eibach for $35. We ran them with that exact system and it a solid setup.

If you love to drive your car like it was built then you can never have too much suspension work.

Thanks! I was thinking it might be overkill since I have never taken a car to the track yet. Maybe someday though.

BTW... Voted you for MOTM and you should win. Love what you have done.

Have you considered BC coil overs? That would make a huge difference. Good luck with ur new setup; installing it is the fun part.

Thanks NaplesStang! I honestly dont think you can overkill the suspension on a S197. Just degrees of improvement

Theres parts of this list I would change. Eibach Dampers are pretty terrible at best, the tests ran on these but not only myself but other companies prove there are much better out there. J&M bushings will leave much to be desired as well, one of the reasons BMR is so popular.
