Default Plan of Attack

Subject: '91 Coupe

Let me know if I am missing anything. I am starting with the suspension and braking prior to moving on to power adders.

On Order (will be here 3/27)
Steeda Sport Springs
Tokico Illumina Struts & Shocks
Steeda Caster Camber Plates
Energy PolySpring Isolators
Steeda Upper & Lower Control Arms
Steeda Full Length Subframe Conectors

To be ordered next week
Cobra R Disc Brake Kit
'95 17" Cobra R Wheels
Tires (still researching what fits)

I think this should give me a good base. What would be next for ultimate handling? I don't really want the Steeda 5 link rear but was considering a K-Frame and Tubular A-Arms.

Thanks for any input.

Strange adjustable shocks and struts FTW! I'd get the MM XL full length subframes instead of the Steeda's.

Thanks for the input guys.

Very good read on the Torque Boxes Joel. Will definately put that on the list of to do.

I really like Tokico 92hatch, plus I got a really good deal.

I will check more into the MM XL subframe connectors I just know they are much taller.

As far as "package kits" r.barn I did see those and thinking of one of the k-member kits. Have to see if the budget allows.
