Ok, since i was installin the Brembo CTS-VR Calipers i asked the dealer to swap in the FG2 Shocks..

The ride hasnt changed much, but cornerin is AMAZIN...

However, i have noticed when i lay the power down on a corner, she does seem to understeer, but when i release she actually then over compensates and Oversteers...I need stiffer shocks, but i also need to balance the car a little. Less weight all around, but more taken out from te front...

Anyone have any ideas for Stock height springs with stronger ratings?

Throttle lift oversteer mid-corner is common in RWD cars, and not an indication that you need to change anything.

True, but a stronger set of springs will give it that little bit more squat resistance when i lay down the power...

I have to admit my turns are very crisp, and flow better then normal..Had to slow myself down durin some of my turns...Was out performin the stock tires i have now...

You could prob go with the GC setup with the Stiffer Springs, and keep it at stock height if you want, then lower down for your days at the track... Prob your best bet IMO

LOL,

$5000 brakes for a car that doesn't need them. $1000 shock upgrade for a car that does need more than that. :thepan:

Naf you should have got a nice penske setup and kept the OEM brakes.

Chuck Mallett has a Penske shock set up that he claims eliminates wheel hop.

Oh i remember Mallett, we dont sell those spindle individually, only as a cnverstion kit...Very rude in their professional approach...
