Package deal any good?
Currently I have full exhaust, intake, tb and tuned I have no suspension work on the car yet....I plan on doing suspension work this winter are the package deals any good for these cars? For example bmr has lowering springs panhand, strutower brace, control arms, sfc etc etc for like 1100 bucks..am i better off buying each individual piece separate or the package deals are worth it on these cars I dont take this car to the track at all but i do plan on putting cams and heads in eventually over time....I dont mind spending extra money I jsut want the car done right... if anybody has bought a package deal which one did u use how did u like it?? Thanks in advance!

do you want the car to be on rails around turns or do you want it to go fast in a stright line?
do you need a nice quiet ride or can you put up with some bumps and a little bit of noise?

As previously posted it depends what you want to do with your car. I have had excellent results with Strano Performance parts. I spoke to Sam Strano several times before buying my first suspension parts.

Id kinda liek the best of both, an equal balance of the two i really just dont want the car to twist I have stock size tires on the car with good tread and i still have trouble hooking especially from a slow roll or stop.....I would def liek the car as quiet inside as possible with no noise but the exhaust lol

UMI suspension parts are great

here's the compromise I found from my own experience. rod ends will give you great handling but are noisey on bumps and beat the hell out of you. polyurethane give slightly smoother ride then rod ends but bind up under agressive turning.
heres what I would suggest..
- LCA: on car adjustable, rubber bushing/ rod end combo.
-LCA relocation brackets
-PHB: on car adj. rod ends.
-adj. transmission mount TA
-trans mount w/ TA relo. bracket
-3 point SFC
-adj. rear sway bar
-(UMI) front sway bar
-koni or SLP bilsteins
