Eliminating body roll

Post by Gittany » Mon Sep 21, 2015 10:01 am

Hey guys I was talking with my brother about how I want to get coilovers and sways to eliminate the body roll I feel but he said I can't just do that and I need to change heaps of stuff like cv joints and all this other stuff

Could someone let me know what stuff I'll need to change so I can budget for my parts?

Sways and Coilovers would be fine. Maybe some adjustable end links but thats about it

As I lay rubber down the street,
I pray for traction I can keep,
But if I spin and start to slide,
Please dear god protect my sweet ride.

Amen

This is an area that start small is very apt. Suggest you go with sways and end links first. Get used to that while saving for coilovers.

Yeh I was thinking of buying the racing beat sways while saving for some decent coilovers. From what I read racing beats are very good is there any other brands I should check out?

Whiteline, I have the adjustables made a big difference on my tired oem suspension.
If you lower the car you'll need adjustable endlinks so if you plan on getting coilovers get the endlinks with the sway bars.

I would recommend Ric Shaw's adjustable swaybars. Similar in price and quality to Whiteline (better IMHO), and are adjustable to boot!
