    yes. it'll launch better, feel more solid, and feel much more planted around corners.

    Sweet, that's what I was hoping for....also I'm putting in my SFC's as well.

    I should have done the suspension/tranny before I did my go fast goodies....I'm slowly but surely getting the suspension done and already got the tranny on layaway for the winter...I'm excited to be able to put the power to the ground

    I noticed no difference from these mods, other than the squeeking from the poly control arms.

    I did an adjustable panhard bar and can notice the difference. if anything it just feels like the rear end isn't 'disconnected' from the car anymore if ever so slightly.

    I am going to go ahead and say it before a mod steps in. Let's get this thread back on track here fella's. Play nice.

    Which PHB are you going with Z28?

    And I also did the suspension/drive train first. Now I am tapped out lol.
    It's on jackstands.

    i agree with the fact that the suspension is the first thing that needs modding, but the stock suspension is in no way unsafe. LOTS of room for improvement though.

    i mean NO offense to your suspension setup, but even you have a ton of room to improve still. those springs are really not the best for handling. the shocks are good though, at least better than stock. sfc's don't really make the car turn better, but they'll make it feel more solid and stable. a torque arm will not improve handling unless you get the one specially designed for it(~$700) which is kind of insane. throw on some swaybars and you'll notice a huuuge improvement.

    just about anything you replace will make a noticeable difference though

    I agree fully that suspension should be done, however dont underestimate the stock ws6 suspension. I know someone who has really pushed their car to the limit. I followed them in my vette and I was surprised at what stock suspension can handle, even at 128,000 miles on their car. Granted they dont have many go fast parts done but still, the stock suspension is relatively good for being a decade old design...

    You'll like the SFCs, it felt a lot more solid and a bit stiffer suspension wise. I want to do LCAs next as well. IDK about the panhard bar yet. Don't know which to get.

    Any further garbage off topic comments will result in warnings. Keep this a technical discussion.

    You will notice your car being stiffer with the SFC and a little better launch with the LCAs Z28.

    I did notice the subframe connectors as well. Definaetely stiffened the car up. I went with a double adjustible rod ended panhard bar from Spohn. No noise and no regrets.
