Suspension mod before and after
Well this weekend I installed the FRPP K springs and took it up and down Mt. Lemmon. Here are the results.
Before pic is with GT500 shocks, struts, springs and front sway bar on a GT. After is with GT500 shocks, struts, front sway bar, and FRPP K springs all around.
The ride is notably stiffer, but not all that bad, and definitely worth it! Body roll is greatly reduced; she really hugs the road. There's still some understeer, but it can easily be countered with some throttle through the turn. For instance, I took a right turn at an intersection doing about 40, shifted into 3rd before starting the turn. As soon as she started to plow I got on the gas a bit and her rear swung around nicely. Unfortunately there was too much traffic on the mountain to really get on her through the twisties, but still fun nonetheless!
