    What does this consist of..

    I was just curious what the "upgraded suspension" on the WS6 actually is compared to a regular T/A. Is it possible to save the few thousand dollars difference and upgrade the suspension the same or better than the WS6 on your own?

    `98-`00 cars had higher rate springs 32mm front swaybar and different valving in the Decarbon shocks.
    `01-02 Cars are the same except they have the same springs as a regular T/A.
    `99-`00 there was a 1LE Suspension kit that added DA Koni's 21mm rear swaybar and harder durometer bushings. This was only available on M6 Formula's.
    And Yes you can upgrade the Suspension to beyond the WS6 Level.
