This is so weird, is that boone valley? I thought I recognized the shop area maybe, and your last name as your user name. Is your name Kyle?

Only suspension mods you have are the LCAs and the PHB?

Try switching to the stock parts and see if the rattles go away.

You can fit a 315/35 on a 10.5" wheel. If you are running the 17x9 SS wheels then you should be using a 275/40 tire on the front.

Id look into getting a tick adjustable MC, either that or it might be time to consider a new clutch (with a non adjustable pressure plate).

Those wheel need to go ASAP, 20s will ride horrible on these cars (and for the most part look horrible). Get some 17s or 18s with 275s (or wider) all around.

Try the road race section or the suspension section. I remember reading that with this pump the steering becomes a little more stiff/heavier.

25mm rear bar would be way too stiff(oversteer), not to mention really heavy compared to a proper 22mm hollow bar that you should be using with 35mm front for neutral balance.
