    Will bushings give me less lean?

    I did some searching around and didn't have any luck. I want to reduce lean in my car but do not want to lower it. Will polyuerothane (sp?) bushings help? If not where should I start? I don't want to do anything major just make the car a little tighter more buckled down around turns. As far as handling goes the only mod I have done is replace the stock POS's with Michelin Pilot Sport's 225/50 16's.

    Oh that's easy - STi takeoffs. They'll only lower the car 1/4" or so (not really even noticeable). You could also do v.7 STi RA springs over your stock struts. Or the same over Konis (that's my setup) or KYBs. Or a whole STi RA/SPT setup. There are a load of STi options. Any one of which might be right for what you're looking for.

    Bushings will sharpen things up subtly but probably not like you want.
