    hey guys, just wanted to run my suspension list that i plan on doing by you guys for some input. I currently have eibach pro kit, kyb agx 8 way adjustable gas shocks/struts. My goals for the car when im done are 450-500rwhp. Here is what I plan to do:

    MM strut tower brace
    MM caster camber plates
    steeda aluminum non adjustable lower/upper control arms
    MM full length subframe connectors
    NItto 555R radials out back

    How does that look, anything im missing that you think would be vital? thanks guys

    i was told that the panhard bar only works well if you eliminate upper control arms and go to a torque arm?? true? if this is the case i really dont want to get involved all of this, im just trying to make this car into a street/fun car and think some aftermarket upper/lower control arms will do the trick.

    A panhard bar locates the rear end side to side, something the stock arm arangement does not do as well as it it could.

    On a fun street car, you don't need one, I've never missed not having one myself.
