    Ok, I know... the whole thing about modifying minivans. :rolleyes:

    Anyway, I just found out my dad is planning on getting a new car, so he'll be giving me his 91 MPV in a couple months (since my Mustang is getting old and starting to cost me money).

    It's a 2wd V6 model. I'd like to improve the handling of it. I'm already planning on installing urathane sway bar bushings front and rear (this made a huge difference on my Cherokee). Anyone know of any stiffer springs or other suspension components out there for the MPV that would reduce the "minivan feel"?

    I'm thinking it'll be pretty damn hard to find parts to accomodate the jazzing-up of a minivan. Most likely, you'd have to measure to see if springs for other Mazda vehicles would fit. Try checking the Mazda truck springs, I suppose.

    Yeah, not worth the effort. I'll just go with the urathane bushings and maybe drop it down to a 60 series tire to get rid of some of the sidewall flex.
