i already have koni's, H&R springs, TMS sways, adjustable rear camber arms, RE rear strut mounts. i dont think i will do anything else suspensionwise. I did have the subframe reinforced while its there, powerflex subframe bushings etc..... I also got the OSGiken rear diff, HPF traction control, Ksport BBK 8piston front--6 piston rear. then did some preventative stuff- new water pump, oil pump, alternator, new belts...etc...etc. As you know with the vert, we are limited on tracking our cars depending on the venue so i think this will be the end of the performance modding of this car. should be a monster of a daily driver though.........lol

Great stuff and I'd say that's more than sufficient. Freaking monster on the street no doubt.
