Default Best part/mod for under $100

As the title implies; what is the best part you purchased or mod you completed under $100?

Curious to see varying experiences/tastes.

whiteline steering rack bushings ~$30 - made a huge difference in steering response and finally fixed my crooked steering wheel. lol.

TiC fender braces ~$100 - made the front end feel a lot less sloppy and helped with steering response.

For the price, these mods made the biggest difference in how the car feels. Highly recommend.

Swaybar, front or rear, either will make a huge difference. If you can get one used for $100 or less it will be worth every penny!
