    suspension Q

    im looking at a couple parts to hopefully firm up my suspension, id like to get some lower control arms, torque arm, panhard bar maybe sub frame connectors? what would be the best set up? should i get adjustable panhard bars and lower control arms? bolt on or weld on SFCs? thanks for any advice,

    in the very limited experience i have with suspension, its been my opinion that i was gonna get double adjustable pieces to ease the dial in period. i dont want to install, remove, adjust, and then re install.

    yes to the panhard, yes to a torque arm and sub frame connectors. if you have a choice get the subframe connectors welded on...more durable in my opinion. also need to decide if you want boxed or tubular.

    try the site sponsors, and also check out madman racing for suspension parts.

    i concur on all accounts or you can also do the following:

    Koni Single Adj. shocks
    35mm front sway bar

    depends on what you are trying to stiffin? does the car have a lot of flex in it-then do the above, if you're trying to stiffin it for the corners, than the shocks/sway will do adequetly

    well i was hoping to get less wheel hop cause when i put it to the floor the car feels as though its jumping out from under me, i also dont want a bent frame, from what ive heard its not hard to do with stock power

    cant bend the frame if you dont have one.....

    subframe connectors will take care of all that.

    the SFC will take care of the frame and the LCA's, panhard, and torque arm will help with the wheel hop
