I would recommend an adjustable pan hard bar. It will allow you to recenter the rear end back under the car due to it shifting when its lowered. And another good recommendation would be a a set of Convertible SFC's to solid up the chassis we offer a bolt on and a weld on version. And then go with a good set of shocks as well. Below is a few links to show you what we have to offer!

If you have any other questions feel free to ask and I will be glad to help!

Hello, we offer 1.25" lowering spring that just happen to be on sale until May 17. You will also need an adjustable panhard bar to correct body alignment. We also have weld on frame connectors that will stiffen your chassis. We make complete suspension for you car from front to back. Here is a link to our site. If you have any questions please let me know.

BMR and UMI products are great, can't go wrong either way. I'll tell you this: DO SHOCKS FIRST. They are the single biggest improvement to ride quality, handling, and control you can make. Do it right, and there is no downside. Call Sam Strano - get Konis. Every other mod should follow that. Doing other things besides shocks first is stupid - ask me how I know.

If you really want "rideability" (don't know what that actually means), keep you stock springs, get Konis - run the lower front perch and heater hose the rear. My guess is at that point, you'll have what you want. If you still want less body roll - get Sam's sway bars. If you want an even firmer, tighter ride and are willing to accept potential additional squeaks, get the subframes and PHB.

Get shocks first, you won't believe it's the same car. Nut up for the Konis, I wish I had- plus they allow you to lower a little too. DO SOME SEARCHING.

If you put lowering springs on with stock shocks, it will ride like **** and you will deserve it. SHOCKS FIRST!!
