i want my car to handle like a beast.

My pro kit suspension pisses me off a lot. it rattles. my steeda LCA's squeek and it doesn't have the handeling i want.

So since everyone is so fond of BMR parts this is what i have in mind for the future.

BMR lowering springs.
BIlstien shocks
BMR front & rear sway bar.
BMR relocation bracket (maybe it will fix the squeeking)

What do you guys think? would it be worth it and would the ride/handling be a lot better? or should i keep my current setup of this V. i feel like the eibachs aren't as good but i haven't tried BMR. hopefully someone can help me out who's changed thier suspension before

Eiback pro lowering springs/shocks
Steeda LCA/UCA & Steeda caster camber plates.
STeeda strut bar.
Steeda panhead bar.

u have eibach's shocks too? i dont think the springs alone will make that big of a difference, eibach and bmr have similar spring rates... Now if your on stock shocks and you add the bilsteins with new sway bars that will be a nice upgrade my friend.

yeah i have the shocks too. i'll probably end up doing the bilstein shocks, bmr relocation bracket, and the sway bars then.

Your car isnt going to handle like a beast with those tires on it period. When I run the 17s with the pirellis my car is a different car, sucks basically. Your suspension starts with the tires, or ends with the tires, however you want to look at it.

Bilsteins are a better damper then what you have no debate. Would it be worth it...

Check the bushings on your parts. You could always change bushings. I would change shocks before I would change arms, not to sway you from a BMR purchase but that isnt going to change handling.

Relocation brackets arent going to fix a squeek. Or I guess I should say shouldnt fix a squeek. Not that they would be a bad idea though.

i agree with the wider wheels, but if your gunna stick with stock wheels go with the BFGoodrich T/A KDW2's
BFGoodrich g-Force T/A KDW 2


and for suspension i would go with the ford racing kit, its only 1,100 on summit racing and and its the full kit and its an amazing diffrence, i dont have them yet in my car but my friends dose and ive driven it vs my stock suspension and its an amazing diffrence, especialy threw the canyons

Cool thanks rich and everyone. i'll start with the bushings and relocation brackets and then go from there. i do plan on getting wider wheels and tires but i need to save up some money first. and i also want the bmr sway bars. then if i'm still not satisfied after all that i'll consider the bilsteins.

I absolutely hate those tires! With the car being bone stock running no mods the car enjoys buring those things up like nothing! go through a corner hard and get on the gas coming out they will break with no problem
