I've been going back and forth with a ton of different options, brands, combinations, and have been trying to figure this out for months now. Here we go... I wont be doing auto cross, maybe taking the car occasionally to the strip, but it will be my DD. I can't not stand any type of squeaks or noises. I don't mind a harsh ride so that's not an issue. Want a slight drop 1"-1.5". Basically I want everything to work perfectly, so if I'm missing something please let me know. Or if you recommend something else let me know and why. Thanks in advance!!!

Again, I'm compulsive as ever and want to get it right the first time. I'm sure I haven't addressed something, not sure what. But if these is more info needed to help this process along just let me know. Everything is from AM, they have a military discount :hihi:
I think that is pretty solid.
As for the Panhard Bar, is that an aluminum bar? I highly recommend a steel panhard bar, as I have dealt with too many customers who have damaged the thread on the aluminum versions.
The Sway bars in the Eibach kit, are they adjustable both front and rear? What size are they, and are they hollow or solid? The reason I ask, is, for what you are looking to do with your car....I honestly do not feel like a set of sway bars is going to give you that great of a benefit.
Are the shocks and struts adjustable? If so, just rebound with a fixed compression/bump....or do they adjust both rebound and compression?
I also feel that the bumpsteer kit may not really be a "must" for this package, as well. My recommendation would be to do the other modifications first, then, if you experience excessive bumpsteer that bothers you, pull the trigger.
I often times see, and deal with, customers who take their suspension a little too far. Just a few modifications (less than what you have listed) can typically prodivde a very good boost inb performance and handling, and cost substantially less than what some may think.
If you have any questions about suspension, please feel free to ask me.
