Default What is the group opinion on this handling pack


I have the base v6 convertible and just found out that it doesn't even have a rear sway bar..DOH!!!

With the LMR setup would it be a major improvement even with the stock tires and wheels?(16's)

I could do tires and wheels this year or a suspension pack but not both.

The swaybars in that package would be decent, but I'd pass on the shocks/struts and springs. Konis are on sale right now, Koni STR.T's are good if you're on a tight budget, or the yellow adjustable Koni Sports for better performance. Steeda springs mate well with the Konis, I had Steeda Ultralites with my Koni Sports (and Eibach sway bars) before I went back to stock springs and AST shocks/struts.

I'd agree with Miniata, if your going to have the for a while, do it right one time.
I'd do the adjustable Koni sports, Steeda Comp springs(ultr-lights are a bit low 4 me) and appropriate adjustable sway bars that are proper for the V6 Convertible. I'd call Steeda and get info on what springs and sway bars are appropriate, but the Koni adjustables would work because they are adjustable. Erik
