Handling Pack Upgrade

I currently have a DD 13 GT w/ base specs no track pack or brembo pack.

I am looking to buy an entire suspension upgrade kit from AM within the next few weeks. But after asking a few people they say it will 'harshen' the ride up and should only be used for track purposes. I want to upgrade because I feel like the ride is very plushy and bouncy on the highways and doesnt control as well as I think it should.

I know this can be subjective but ill hear you out

Yea altering the suspension is gonna give u a bit of a harsher & stiffer ride but that's what u want if u don't like it to be bouncy & plushy! Different set ups are gonna give u different results in handling & ride quality so research & see what best fits ur needs!

I went with Steeda and have nothing but positive things to say (handling AND ride quality).

The car feels very solid and planted at all times. Aggressive highway speeds and maneuvering are much more safer. Imperfections in the road can definitely be felt much easier, but the stiffer ride 'absorbs' them well so ride quality actually improved instead of worsening. I haven't gotten to sway bars yet, but I can already take much more aggressive turns and my friends have even noticed it as well.

I DD with all the suspension mods in my sig and I'd say its easier to DD my GT with the new suspension vs. the stock suspension, but that's just me.

what would be an ideal handling pack that would help with highway driving and road hazards?
