Suspension questions

I'm trying to tighten up the front end suspension/lowered maintenance.I bought the car with lowering springs already installed so im playing catch up with the proper supporting mods for a lowered car.I I'm looking at Steeda's bump steer kit and ball joint kit and also while I'm at it inner tie rods as well.With the bump steer kit it says it's adjustable,how would I gauge I guess is the best word how to properly adjust it.(if that makes any sense)basically I'm confused on what I'd be looking to adjust when installing.Or is this something that is done during the alignment??And I also want to make sure installing the bump steer or ball joint kit won't change my ride height correct?Appreciate any help as I'm trying to learn but it's a process and I'm afraid to ask for help lol

If it only has lowering springs the next step would be new shocks and struts. I prefer koni. I don't think the parts you are looking at are really needed.

Here are the directions for adjusting the kit on the alignment rack:

What does the car currently have on it ... if you are lowered from a previous owner .. does it have a panhard bar?

Send me an email at tim@steeda.com & let's discuss what your options are. No, the ball joints will not raise the car.

Best Regards,

TJ

Okay ... what are you goals & what do you do with the car? Are you looking for a better handling DD or are you looking to drag or track it?

Looking for a better handling DD with potential for some light Auto crossing.The power is more than enough,in the end I'll probably have full exhaust,intake,tune.Basic bolt ons,but I want it to handle much better than it does right now

I do not see any upper strut mounts on your list of equipment. (That is highly recommended)

How much lower is the car than stock?

If you would like ... please send me an email at tim@steeda.com & we can talk off-line about your options & how to achieve your goals with the proper set-up.
