    What suspension mods do you have done?

    Just like the title says, list up your suspension/handling mods.

    Mine listed in order of install:

    BMR Strut Tower Brace
    BMR boxed weld in sub-frame connectors
    BMR boxed lower control arms
    BMR relocation brackets for the lower control arms
    BMR chromoly adjustable panhard bar
    BMR lowering springs
    KYB adjustable shocks(fixing to bite the dust)
    BMR drive shaft safety loop
    BMR upper panhard relocation kit
    Cross-drilled & slotted rotors
    BMR adjustable torque arm(awaiting install)

    Best mod listed above IMO is the sub-frame connectors and the worst is the KYBs. I am going to be replacing the rear KYBs for Koni SA ASAP.

    OMG YES! it's less body twist and very attentive when you turn the wheel. a great combo is stiff shocks and a beefy sway bar
