If you guys need to know other mods let me know.
I figured it was about time to upgrade my suspension because I have bee getting this unpleasant thudding noise on my front driver side when I hit unavoidable bumps here in dirty jersey. I was looking to pick up front and rear Whiteline sway bars (22mm F 22mm R sound about right?)and Kartboy endlinks very soon. Other than that I am at a lose as to what to do. Coilovers? Springs, dampener insert, top hats???? Please help!
I'll concur with fixing the clunk first, repairs before upgrades. Swaybar sounds good, pretty common upgrade, lots of reviews and opinions out there.

I also love my RCE wagon springs, though I dont know if they still make them or not. Coupled with tokico d specs, which will hopefully be available again soon, they are the best mix of performance combined with comfort. Its athletic but not unbearable. My GF doesnt dislike it and I dont shake up all my beer on the drive home with NVH.

Tokico and maperformance are taking very good care of me on a warranty so far, I am awaiting my new fronts, which took 80k miles to defect. Tokico/Hitachi is greatly affected by the tsunamis and will hopefully be back in action soon.

Group N tophats are a must, I feel they helped greatly.

Search grassroots motorsports magazine archives for an article, 10/07 on 10 tips for better handling, they use an 07 wagon.
