Which are better for lowering with 19s? Possibly Ground-Control?

You wanna lower it once and forget it? Be able to adjust it? Track it? What are you looking to do?<br><img src= height=98 width=152>

Although I'll probably be doing light track and auto-x, primarily for the look and better handling while not comprimising the ride too much.

look at a stopwatch (other the the 1/4 mile) coilovers are near must...but then so are a lot of other things.

Personally, I suggest
<a href="">ground control camber adjustment plates</a> and an aftermarket sway bar - either the
<a href="">ground control</a> or
<a href="">Eibach</a> sways. The GC's are adjustable front and rear, the Eibachs front only...depends on how serious you want to be about it.

If you're going to do suspension first, GC is definitely the top street/track combo. PSS9's are a close 2nd...and what I have. Either way, if you're going to run for time, you really should have adjustable purches so that you can corner makes a real, perceptible difference.

To do over again, knowing that I'm going to track the car at least 4 times next year, i'd buy in this order:

Camber plates
SSR comps (same size all the way around)
BBK (that fits under my street wheels w/o spacer)
Coilover suspension

It's easy to argue a different order of priority, or that none of this is necessary to enjoy the car on the track. Opinions will vary. Set your priorities first, then start buying.<br><img src= height=98 width=152>
