Hopefully, if I win the lottery, I would someday like to get the Bilstein PSS-9 coilover setup, along with some nice camber plates, as well as better sway bars and some strut bracing. I'd also like to stay in STC, although I know I'll still get my ass handed to me by the Civics.

Update:
If anyone wants to know, I am running Kosei K1 TS with 225/45/17 Bridgestone Pole Position SO-3 summer tires. On full lock, I get some rubbing on the front mudflap (aftermarket urethane flaps). No biggie. Still sorting out the suspension...needs a front sway bar upgrade very badly..the front just waffles in hard turns. Bleh.

the majority of suspension setups for these cars appear to sag in the rear, esp on wagons, go here for a fix:
Got a saggy butt? I have a fix

is there a thread that says all the equipment needed for a rally suspension? picked up a 02 RS sedan that has been slammed and we need it up for my sons first car. I live in a subie challenged town and figure if I can get all the nuts and bolts needed I have a better chance at getting a shop to help, thanks!
