    Strut tower bar to reduce chassis flex, lowering springs, panhard rod, performance shocks, and bigger wheels with high performance low-profile tires.

    That should make a nice difference

    I'd go with 17 in. wheels and tires, thats what my car has. Anything bigger than 18's will look ridiculous

    right now I am weighing options on a set of 18's . My car is black so I was going with a black set of rims with a polished lip to offset all the black

    With SFC, LCA, PHB, STB, Strano Parts sway bars, Pro-Kit springs, AGX shocks, 18x9.5 wheels, 275 front & 285 rear tires I usually pull 1.02 - 1.08 G's depending on road conditions & suspension settings on a regular basis. That's with Poly/poly and not rod ends either. I say start with SFC's, spings & shocks and build from there.

    strano talks a mean game and claims he's the best-that's why you think that. I'm sure his will hold up just as well as a set of BMR or like mine; a 35mm from Jegs
