endlinks were a great improvement to the handling.

Pick up a power brake bleeder...that was also a great safety improvement as well as stopping quicker.

Different rims?

I did the endlinks...no improvement.

I am on the lookout for good ghetto golds with no flaking...

Haha, good answer Rogue.

I suppose we should ask JDB what tpye of mod he is looking for. Performance? Handling? Appearance?

I would probably go with appearance. She handles good and if you look at my car of the month archive the performance category is "Project Preserve-The Tranny" so i don't want to increase the power much. I'm going to need to do exhaust in the future because i'm getting holes in the muffler, but I don't want loud exhaust.
