Default aftermarket brakes and suspension?

Hey guys,

What'* the best bang for the buck aftermarket brakes? Mine were a little warped when I got them, and now a coupla runs slowin' down too quick from 100+.....lets just say they were smokin pretty good.

Also some new suspension. Mainly just lowering it a little bit, more aggresive stance, and for some reason it sags a little in the rear....so I think my rear shocks or somethin are going.

Also, just got my FWI in, and wow, listen to that supercharger whine! Sweetness...

If it'* an SSEi, and it sags in the rear, your ELC needs adjusting. Try Techinfo. Don't buy new springs, you don't need them.

For brakes, try www.rsmracing.com

I went with stock rotors and ceramic pads, love them, quiet, clean and stops on dime
and the price was good too
Knew you would like the fwi, the sound is worth every penny.

One more thing, try the energy suspension polyurethane endlinks for a bit more cornering stability.

I want some lowering springs also. I want the better handling. I also like the way it looks. I have an ssei. how will the adjustable susp. work with lowerd springs?
In the tech. info link they mentioning setting your susp. for sport, rather that touring. Can this be done in my 2000 ssei?

Fate, please put "2000 SSEi" in your signature with any modifications you've done.

You read the wrong article. You read the CCR article (which you don't have). Read the ELC article. I'm sure the sensor could be modified or adjusted for drop springs. But nobody had dropped a 2k+ so far. You'd be totally custom right off the bat.
