    I got a sway bar and then some, tower brace bar in front, SFC, tq arms, adj panhard, 12 bolt. when I floor it it won't even shake or flex... it feels like a small plane takes off, shoulders back nailed ot the seat...

    sfc= sub frame connectors so the TA won't flex, it connect the front and back chasis. springs and shocks for a firmer ride and reduces the nose dive when you break, and the squeaks in the rear, front tower bracing bar for better cornering (reduces the body roll a lot)...

    I haven't rode in my brothers 3rd gen in awhile so I don't remember them rattling that bad. I do remember it some what. I think it's to loud now to hear most of rattles though.

    id say if i didnt have doors or if they were fixed, my ride would be smooth as hell. but ill still probably invest in some fcs and suspension mods eventually to improve the ride quality

    but, my thoughts are... i cant have my cake and eat it too, can i? what i mean is, can i have good handling, a great drag launch, and great ride quality all at the same time? or would increasing one sacrifice the other? would soft rear springs and stiff front springs do it? that way its soft in the back for launches but stiff in the front for handling? and comfort... well, w.e.

    this question's for anyone. its in the suspension section, so i figured why not, and i didnt wanna create a new thread for it

    It's always a compromise. What's good for drag is bad for cornering. I want to keep my car good at both, but am mainly going towards cornering seeing I don't drag race at a strip much. I figure if I plan on a drag day I'll just pull the front sway bar off soften up the shocks, air down the rear tires or get some DR's for the strip and I should do good yet.

    i figured it was always a compromise. is there a way of upgrading both by a little, while increasing comfort?
    like, i dont have a drag queen car, but would just like better launches. my car isnt for autox either, but id just like to do better with cornering even tho it does extremely well.
