Default Suspension/Handling Upgrades for 97 SSEi

Hey all,

I've searched through the forum, and found most of the handling suggestions involve putting FE2 swaybars, struts and so on on FE1 equipped cars. My SSEi has the FE2 package, so I was wondering what upgrades are available beyond the FE2 parts. Are any of the F41 parts different? I'm mostly looking for mild improvements. Any easy chassis stiffening upgrades like a rear strut bar?

Addco makes a rear sway bar and you can get energy suspension endlinks for the front.

Coilsprings.com makes custom springs too.

If you're interested in lowering Check This Out.

I forget who makes them, but Advance Auto had urethane front sway center bushings on their online site only. Stores couldn't even see them.

To stiffen up the rear a bit from dropping when you hammer the throttle, you may want to consider Air Lift drag bags. I love'm.
