    2011 Project Suspension wat do you guys think?

    Hey guys I bought a 2002 ws6 m6 50k miles about 7 or 8 monthes ago car has been in storage all winter. Car currently has american racing lt's, slp LM2 K+N air, Ported Tb car has been tuned ima say somewhere around 350 to 360 to the wheels and it has no suspension work done to the car yet so i figured suspension will be the 2011 project I put a list together after reading up on some of the parts if anyone has any input on these parts please let me know. I drive the car daily through the summer time about 5 or 6 months out of the year and plan on keeping the car for a long time. My main concern is keeping the car from twisting. Here is my list Thanks in advance

    - UMI 3 point bolt in subframe Connectors
    - UMI 35MM front and rear Sway Bars
    - UMI Strut Tower Brace
    - UMI LCA/PHB Kit-PolyBushing/ rod-end all single adjustable
    - Strano Performance 1.2" Lowering Springs
    - Koni Single adjustable front and rear Shocks


    Eventually in a few years ill probably do internal work like cam heads moser 9" but for now i wanna make sure this fbody is held together well Any input i appreciate it

    Some will tell you not to bother with the strut tower brace. You might also want to check out Strano's hollow sway bars.

    remove the strut tower brace and add an adjustable torque arm and relocation brackets for your LCA's

    I'd wait on the torque arm until you get the new rear end.

    I'd also skip the TSB and get a panhard bar with relocation brackets.

    I suppose, but if he is lowering his car, his pinion angle is going to be wrong which in turn is going to have more problems likely to occur with his drivetrain.
