suspension guidance

wanted to get some input and recomendatins for a good combo for 70% street/ 30% track. was talking to justin about possible 23mm bars in front and 30mm rears. Miguel likes his and says it doesmt drive like a truck. then i thought about group b setup wit 22/28, then pete tells me to get the struts and shocks re-valved and go with stiffer sways. my goal is a car that corners REALLY WELL and that i dont need dental work after a spirited drive. i know my front struts are stock and after 23 years are tired. thanks frank

Here is what I was looking at with Clint at Rebel Racing.

22 front, 30 rear
raised spindles 30mm
de-camber spindles 1.5 degress
bump steer kit
revalved bilsteins front and rear to match new torsion bar spring rate
new front bushings

In talking with Clint this would give a good street set up that I could take to the track for DE's and have a good time. More street then track for sure.

We all have the same projects lined up here...

I have the following parts on order from ER (should be arriving this week):
Full ER polybronze bushings for front and rear
ER low friction control arm mounts
ER quickchange adjustable springplates
ER trailing arm mono-balls
ER rear "cambermax" adjusters
new OEM ball joints
new tie rod kit
22mm/29mm hollow t-bars
Bilstein sports F+R

my car is almost entirely street driven (some of what passes for "street" around here is closer to "rally") but I hope to do more track events if I ever stop wrenching on it.

A nice alternative to Polybronze are the maintainance-and-friction-free A-arm bearings from Clint @ Rebel Racing.

Yep, those are the front bushings that I speak of.

my my...those do look tasty. i went with the well worn path of ER's stuff and the fact that chuck already has my credit card on file from the oil cooler I bought from him last year makes the purchase very easy

I also thought a lot over the "to sway bar, or not to sway bar" upgrade question. In the end I decided to see how she rolls with freshened bits all around and stiffer t bars, but leaving the stock sways.

Clint seemed to think that stock sways would be fine for a street car, but if I wanted to go more track then to look at upgrading those.
