    Suggestions on set up for a DD/Weekend spirited driver

    Hey guys,

    had the car a couple months now and was finally getting around to making a wishlist for myself, but was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for a good DD with occasional canyon Runs(and maybe eventual track time in the future.)

    The car originally came with a rear torsion bar, although I'm unsure of the brand. The color itself is grey but the center piece seems to have some kind of carbonfiber overlay or something. Not sure if that was just something cosmetic the last owner did. It also has H&R Front Springs and the rears are an unknown brand, yellow springs. Only springs I found matching it are ST lowering springs.

    As far as I can actually see, I believe that is it. Some guy in the canyon the other day said I have a front torsion bar too, but as far as it looks, it seems stock. That said, that is one thing I wanted to replace, was looking into the DNA fronts, but was also reading into the Neu-F being good as well. While Browsing DNA's catalog on Speedmotive, I was also interested in their Chassis Package 2 which consists of the Subframe brace, Front chassis brace, and camber plates(although not too sure I need these straight away, but at the price, why not?)

    I also noticed that the set up is on stock shocks so was also going to look into some Koni Yellow's all around - Was thinking coilovers, but I think I can hold off for a while, while I truly get an understanding of how my car feels/drives. However, not sure the aim of the last owner, but maybe I should replace the springs for the same brand all around? My goal is to amass the parts over the next few months, and come tax time, buy into anything else I still need and do one big install.

    Mainly looking for some do's/don'ts and more than willing to take on some pointers.

    A photo for good measure:

    I think your plan to hold off and get used to your car's current handling is smart. Then make incremental changes to get where you want to be. It's a wise strategy that I almost never follow though...

    You might only need to do the rear shocks, and I'd do them first before you change anything else. The stock shocks don't work well with lowering springs and can create a very bouncy feeling.

    I think the biggest thing for me that I wanted to do was get the rear under control and get better cornering. I had an lsd installed and it feels soo much better from a stop or pulling through a corner. No more one wheel peel. I just bought a whole DNA suspension package minus top hats since I'm still using it on the road and a set of BC coilovers I'll probably end up replacing with air ride at some point.

    Yeah I definitely wanted to get more seat time with the car and see what it's limits are. Last time I took it for a spirited drive, I definitely felt it wanted to go farther than what I was pushing. It just felt like it wanted to keep on turning, and me not being comfortable with it yet, I pulled back. As far as suspension goes, the last owner did a mix match set of springs and me not knowing why, I'm not completely comfortable running the set up. It drives great, but I think I need to start with a more understandable baseline and have a matching set all around.

    An LSD is actually the one of the first things I wanted to get, and then get all the suspension bits after that. I think that would make the most difference. My last car was an 06 Civic Si and it came with an LSD, and just felt great.
