I just came from the MINI world. And the best mod for the money was to get a bigger rear sway bar. What are your thoughts for the Forte?

I know some guys are already making and testing suspensions for the fortes right now. There is a torsion bar that's made by one of the vendors that is said to help a lot with the rear tires. Others are testing coil over springs at the moment as well along with some more handling parts for outer cars

Rear torsion bar, trunk brace, strut bar, 2 4 or 6 point chassis brace, tork collars. Can also look into the bc coilovers also

tires will always be the most effective change.. than work your way up.. but I truly think out side of colie overs.. we just need a stiffer shock.. or springs seem to be fine.. and I have found success with the trunk brace.. and soon the tower brace and torsion bar.. but I think better tires and better shocks.. ( or springs are fine)

Stock springs may be fine but if in time they come out with a better set of replacement struts and shocks you will still pay just as much for them as you would a set of coils and won't have the adjustability.

this statement is true but its much like putting the cart before the horse.. full colie overs.. are a better option in a race setting.. and I know people like options and that's good. But form what I can tell form this forum and vt fourms.. most people are using there cars as show buckets and street cars.. the 90% would get more out of a well tuned set of shocks and spring than a full set of coils.. I would like to see both options.. most people would get the coils.. seeing adjustability as good thing to have.. but you know as well as I do that most people with coils never adjust them properly or get the appropriate aliment or corner balancing to take advantage of that part.. Picke your poison And vote with your wallet... I say make both and let the Market decide..

I could totally go GHETTO and make sure they don't fly off by putting hose clamps on them :p
Jk jk.... That's for the honda
If I would have thought of this before buying the ksport kit I'd be $1500 richer

Dang! That's a good one or just cut the coils like some do lol!

If the rear is to loose get the rear torsion bar and Tork collars for the front subframe. Not sure if you have those yet but both make a huge difference.

Yeah, not cutting, that'd be a new low
Yes, she's loose as a whorr
Can't get myself to buy rear strut brace.... Everytime I go to buy one a voice in my head goes "what if that money could go towards a tune", and then I quickly exit that page...
