Adjustable panhard bar and camber bolts. If you're taking it to the track now is the time to do some adjustable shocks/struts. Strange makes some affordable ones.

Yes. It's just easier to do the front struts the first time when you do the front springs.

I used the camber bolts and aligned it myself with nothing more than a straight edge and digital level. It's actually pretty easy.

I guess you didn't understand what I was saying...the strut mounts really are junk, my car was brand new when I lowered it, but it started clunking soon after , the strut mounts can't handle it, but it's only when you turn sharp going slow, but you can deal with it, its just annoying..

Yep they are sh**. I have stock suspension and had to get my struts replaced 2 weeks after I bought it back in july. And its starting to make the same noise again, time to go throw a fit at the dealer.

What do you need panhard bar relocation brackets for? I know you need them for the LCAs but do you really need them for the adjustable panhard bar?

Asking cause I'm a total amateur :)
