All my suspension, front and rear is completely stock, except for 1" lower Eibach springs in front and rear, which came on the car when I bought it. My rear is really jumpy and skips alot around corners. My guess is that I need to replace the rear suspension. I'm looking to tighten up the rear strength. I was looking at Steeda Aluminum rear lower and upper arms. It would be nice to lose alot of weight in the rear, but tighten and beef it up. Suggestions please. Remember, that everything is stock and has NOT been replaced.

Thanks!

dont get steeda, go with maximummotorsports.com they are far superior. That will help, if you want an amazing handeling rear end get a panhard bar with the lcas along with springs/shocks set up the same (what ever rate you want just get a handeling spring not just a soft rate spring that drops the car for looks only)

SpectorV can you be a bit more specific on what type of springs and shocks I should get? I have Eibach 1" lower front and back springs.

since you dont want a slamed car, your current springs may be perfectly fine, im not sure, i do know that the fms c springs/mach 1 springs/bullit springs are all very similar in rate. if your eibachs are 650front 250-300rear~ the mach 1 tokicos will work great with them.

a panhard bar is an amazing item, so are mm's lcas they are designed to prevent bind and make for less noise.

I would say your main problem is definately your shocks and struts. if you have wheel hop that bad, your shocks are not doing their job. They're there to combat your springs from creating the wheel hop that you speak of. I personally would go with a panhard bar yet, but that's up to you. I would focus on shocks and struts, sub frame connectors, a strut tower brace if you can get one. Lower control arms would help some also, but your car is rather new, so they can't be in that bad of shape.

The Panhard Bar and Torque Arm setup is the way to go, if you want that car to really handle. That is something I am going to install sometime in January. Right know I just have

Kenny Brown springs,strut tower brace,lower chassis brace
GRC Performance full legnth subframe connectors,
GT sway bars
Polyurethane bushings throughout
Maximum Motorsports lower control arms
Koni yellow single adjustable struts and shocks

Up next my Aluminum Rack bushings and Panhard Bar.

a panhard is 350-400 bucks from mm, they are alot but the difference they make in the car is amazing.

I agree the PB are the way to go as far as handling goes since they control the amount of lateral movement in the axle. They are expensive but damn they
are worth it once you have it installed. That is next for me.
