    Spohn Adjustable "chrome molly" panhard bar
    Spohn Polyurethane bushing kit (full car)
    Eibach Pro Performance Lowering Springs (1.25" drop)
    Tokico Illumina 5-way adjustable shocks & struts
    MOOG front end rebuild kit
    TDS Wonder Bar steering brace

    I was doing research to find out about the swaybars on my car-- 36mm hollow front, 24mm solid rear. The WS6 option group had the largest bars available on the 3rd gen F-cars. The aftermarket kit from Spohn actually has a smaller front bar and a larger rear bar; to make the car more neutral?

    Bigger bar in the front = understeer, bigger bar in the rear = oversteer, right? I guess slightly shrinking the front and beefing up the rear makes the car more neutral. Even without doing the bars yet, the drop, shocks & struts and bushing kit is going to bring new life to the beast :naughty:

    And in a few more months, probably the sway bar kit, billet upper strut mounts, sub-frame connectors, a strut tower brace and probably a bigger MAF sensor. And then next year the Ford 9", disc brake swap with adjustable rear LCA's and torque arm. Oh and a harmonically balanced driveshaft to cut down on vibrations :wiggle: It's like Christmas :coold:

    I just ordered the Hotchkis TVS (minus the coil springs). Hopefully that should do the trick for me. I paid about $800 for the kit, of course my company is an authorized Hotchkis dealer... ;)
