Question Suspension build.

Opinions wanted on what to spend my deployment money on. I originally wanted to spend more money on power mods but I think it would be a lot smarter and more beneficial to go stage2 w/ protune and spend the rest on suspension, wheels and tires. Looking to spend about $4,000 on suspension.

I think so too. Any recommendations? I'm thinking AST coilovers with 27mm front sway and 24mm rear, kartboy endlinks, vorshlag plates and not sure what else yet

Cant go wrong with AST, KW's, ST's or RCE's. Try Vaugh Performance on Socalsubies....I think they are running deals on coilovers.

I would run some good coils, GtWORX or RCE plates and front rear sway bar. Maybe change some bushings.

Oh yea I plan on replacing all the bushings I can. I want to do as much of it as possible on my own but some of the bushings are a pain in the ass

Haha I have a good amount of deployment money saved and I think I would benefit from the adjustability of good coilovers. As for wheels I'm thinking of getting rpf1's or nt03's and tires not sure yet. I already have brand new waiting to be installed buddyclub pads. They were recommended to me by one of the guys at Pann so I'm not sure how good they are. They just came out when I got them.
