So as I head towards going Stage 2...my money is already being saved to upgrade the stock crap suspension.
Seems just about all owners experiences parallel mine. TOO MUCH roll and TOO MUCH bounce.
So...I have been reading here for days in this area of the forum and feel more confused about what to do before I started thinking about it. LMAO!!
I know I will never race at a track. I know I need some changes. I am adding some horsepower in a few days.
So...first thing, will be rims and tires. I am in the process of sourcing what I need and want. I know this will be the best mod to start with.
Second, I want a lower, less roly-poly ride. Lowering is not important to me though.
I need advice on what components to buy. I don't think I need coilovers.
I have seen the RCE Yellow springs advertised on RSD website. Are the good? They say they are designed to work with the Bilstein dampers. I could not find the dampers on their site. Anyone care to elaborate or perhaps someone has these. As well, they have 0 struts for sale. Who is then the best supplier of struts?
I am confused as to what a damper is and what a strut is. To my understanding, if I buy any aftermarket springs, I will invariably ruin my stock struts. I would like to avoid that. I have read that RCE springs with "Koni inserts" will be a good buy. Ok...but what then are inserts?
I apologize for how noob or dumb I sound, but I have no suspension knowledge at all. Just what I have gathered from reading countless threads in this forum.
I am completely stock for now. In the coming 2 months I plan to save and do the following:
1. Rims and tires
2. Front and rear swaybars (im pretty sold on the 24mm front and 22mm rear as a kit by Whiteline)
3. Front and rear endlinks (also sold on the Kartboy sold as a kit)
4. Springs/struts combination (need a lot of advice here as well as elaboration on what dampers and inserts are)
Thanks for any replies I may get.
