Coilovers will be the money maker in weight distribution. You can adjust ride height to shift weight, I highly recommend it if you're serious.
On the M3 I went from a 50/50 stock distribution sitting at 3420 lbs to 2980 and a 49/51 split. Before I added Coilovers I was around a 56/44 split. Those Coilovers did good!
MOST 'good' coilovers---the ones with stainless bodies... are only a couple pounds each...think less than 5...lighter than a strut/spring
the BEST way to save weight on the front of the car is...
lw crank pulley
lw bumper beam
the above will take an EASY #125 off the front of the car...forget struts
and all the other misc things that add up to an easy #20
and i see a lot of people doing a lot of real stupid things to these cars in this thread....quite shocking, really
