If I wanted to upgrade my ride comfortness, would high quality shocks do anything. I am not exactly sure what I am after and what some ideas on what is out there for this car. Is there any product for Bonnes that can upgrade the turning ability or something like that?

Tires are fine, only 3k miles on them. I was looking more towards body roll or something to that effect.

I have the perfect solution for you. Go to the wrecker and get SSE or SSEi front and rear stabilizer bars and brackets. That'* the ultimate for you. You won't believe the improvement in handling and road feel. Install with polyurethane bushings. This is an easy mod. One day for a rookie with no help. And possibly under $100 total, depending on what the wrecker charges for the bars.

Awesome Willwren!!! That was exactly what I wanted to know, but had no idea what they were called. That is pretty cheap if I can get them in good shape. Gonna start looking for them pretty soon.

Buy new endlink kits for the front and rear like we've all been doing lately in the 92-99 forum. For each of the bars (front and rear) you will need the mid-bar brackets and bushings from the donor car. Yours are too small (it'* a genetic thing....it can't be helped).
