I've got a 20mm RSB and AGX/Eibach struts/springs.

What should I do next???

Tax time is coming up and I want to get some parts for the Scooby. :D

Along with the parts, please tell me how it will enhance the performance of my car.

thx.

depends on how much the tax return is and if you want to keep the AGX/Eibach combo or upgrade to coilovers.

so far you have the same set up as I do. If I were you I'd get the STi tranny/motor mounts. I've been told the tranny mount can make your car shift smoother. Mine will go in when I can get a little time.

thinks left to do for suspension:
strut tower bars-stiffen things up a little more
new poly bushings all around- a little tighter all around
adjustable rear lateral links-for the serious racer, can adjust camber
STi or other pillow ball mounts-stronger & some have camber adjustability
and I'm sure there is more, but I can't think of any right now

I forgot to add that I have F&R Strut Tower Bars.

I'm thinking of the following:

Solid RSB endlinks
Kartboy shifter/bushing (I know it's not suspension but it's on my list)
Tranny/Motor mounts
SS Brake lines

I'm gonna try and keep it under $400.

So here's what I'm thinking...

F&R SBL
Kartboy shifter/bushing
SS brake lines
MRT master cylinder support
Tranny/Motor mounts
Better tyres (probably Kuhmos for the $$$ factor)

What vendor(s) would have most/all these parts in stock, NONE of this GB or order and wait crap & provide the best price???

As for install help, I think I can do most of the stuff myself but you're more than welcome to come by when the time comes Scoobyslack. :D

TOTALLY useless, unless you are running 4, 6 or 8 pot calipers you will NEVER put enough force into your master to break the wall, you'd be better off getting the Single stage brake booster/master cylinder combo. And if you COULD break the wall there would be a recall on the car to have a brace put in. All master cylinders flex a lil.

Ok, your the tech. I'll "axe" that one off the list. :D

So here's the realistic/revised list:

F&R SBL
Kartboy shifter/bushing
SS brake lines
Tranny/Motor mounts
Better tyres (probably Kuhmos for the $$$ factor)

On the subject of SBL, what do people thing about the Kartboy SBL bushings for the stock SBL. I've read somewhere (can't remember where) that the OEM SBL are pretty stiff but it's the bushing that is the culprit. That'd free up some $$$ for something else. :D

Josh - I'll keep you in mind on the SBL. What about the ALK???

Mykr,

Will you be autocrossing your car, or no, and if you are do you plan on racing in STS? If you do you can't use the Anti-Lift Kit, or the upgraded tranny and motor mounts. I think the best mod I have ever done to my car was the upgraded rear bar and the second best was the Short Shifter and bushing combo. They made a huge difference, especially on the track. Good tires will also make a huge difference in how the car handles and responds.

Kent - I'm planning on running autoX next season in STS (I guess since I have NO clue to how they break down the cars for each class) so I guess the motor/tranny mounts are out along with the ALK.

How would they know if I'm running motor/tranny mounts???

I'll make STS on like 3 or 4 races, then to SM with my arse
