    Body roll?? I'll let you drive my Jeep with no swaybars, your T/A will feel like it corners flat as a pancake after that.

    Yeah, a few weeks ago actually. I found a great deal on a set of '02 Speedlines with almost new Michelins, so I went with those.

    ..lemme hear your impressions??
    I did it all at once so I can only offer comment as compared to very old stock parts. But the car is unbeleiveably stable at almost any speed and Body roll is next to Zero. Turn in reaction is much quicker. It's amazing how well all the parts work together. Kudo's to Strano for a job well done.

    cool, but i'm a road-guy at heart. I love taking the phoenix on roadtrips etc so i'd prefer it to handle perfectly
