the difference I thought was noticeable right away, the turn in is quicker and there is less body roll then before. I took 2 sharp turns and the car remained flater then before, the front wheels squealed pretty good, but the car was more stable.

It should help somewhat with cornering and maybe turn in, but you need new shocks/springs and thicker sway bars to affect body roll.

Sorry, but you can't trust subjective impressions, particularly if you've invested time and money in something that you expect to make an improvement. And if the subjecive impression doesn't make sense -- i.e., it's not explainable by a known mechanism -- I'd definitly take it with a grain of salt.

It is easy to over tighten, the studs and nuts can take quite a bit of torque, I went to 35 lb-ft

Depending on dealer $250 - $350
or find someone who wants to upgrade, and buy theirs!!!
