WTB M3 suspension bits

Looking for some advise chaps, apart from the general thought I don't really know what I am specifically looking for, in either terms of parts or physically where to look???

Start with control arms (and upgraded bushings while you're at it)

Pretty sure this is it here (choose the m series ones) http://www.trademotion.com/partlocat...layCatalogid=0

Else HPA lays things out pretty well offering 'kits' etc:

After my second skid pan day I wanted to dial out the understear so got the M3 Lower Control Arms & Caster Rods from Andrew at Southern BM. Had them installed by Spinnign Wheels in Alexandria.

Worked a treat.

While the back end can be squirrelly under WOT from a standing stop I've not yet done the rear M3 subframe bushings. I figure I'll wait for the stock ones to wear out before doing them unless I have a reason for dropping the rear subframe.

The car handles much better than I can drive so I figure it's probably a case of investing in more drive days under instruction than making the car handle at 10/10ths.

Yes a big big plus for the M3 front control arms 4 of them and 1 head light arm and very easy too install, replace the front sway bar with the M3 one which is east to do, the back one is a diffent story about $300 in labour to lower the subframe and intall the M3 bar, but what a difference with the M-SPORT suspension car stays very flat and very quick turn i love the highspeed sweepers it just wants to go faster and faster.
Next on the list is your springs and shocks but try those first as with me i'm not going and further yet as the car handles beautiful at the moment with those mods.

Control arms and front sway bar.

Then go with coilovers.
