    It does feel more planted to the ground around turns. Not sports car planted but much better than to touring suspension.

    Suspension mods:
    H&R springs
    Mopar 'sport' shocks and struts
    20mm spacers

    With those it is a lot more responsive.

    Cool. More planted to the ground feel would be welcome.
    New struts might help some since mine are original and done 148k km.
    Anyway nice modding!

    Thanks Finn.
    Everything I bought except the spacers was from Rock Auto.com I also bought new mounting hardware (spring seats, coil isolator, strut mounts) I may buy the rear adjustable control arm as well so I can adjust camber to factory tolerances if I want.

    Yea i have bought parts there. Surprisingly affordable only bad thing is the shipping costs to Finland on some parts.

    Do you have part numbers for the shocks and springs?
    Also, now some time has passed, are you still happy with the setup?

    I am still very happy with my set up. I do have some camber in the rear but that can not be fixed unless you have the adjustable control arms. To be honest I like the look of the camber in the rear now that my wheel spacers pushed the wheels out a bit. Before it just looked silly having that much space.

    Im not up to date on the whole spacers as a mod so this may be a dumb question... but when installing them, aren't they harder on the suspension components and lugs?

    Yeah but since they are hubcentric they won't be off center as much and bolt on too they basically just create a new "hub" bolt mounting place. Much better than the spacers with only holes cut in them and no extended studs. Allows you to get full turns on the threads for best connections
