Regardless, when you add stiffer springs and/or swaybars, the car will just be easier to rotate. So mid corner if you are understeering, give a little more gas and the rear will rotate just enough to compensate. I think a tighter ride is easier to control and is faster, it just takes more skill and concentration to get the car to do what you want it to do, haha. Hope that helps a little. Good information from Dallasboosted!
Thanks for the info, sway-bar's already in and so are the bushings. LSD get's here tomorrow and should be in then. There's no doubt that I'll have to adjust my driving, but looking forward to it.

I am looking into springs as well, but still researching what I should get. There's allot of information (sometimes too much) to glean through, and figure out what I need.

Again, thanks for all the info, always helpful Turb0mike
