Question Wavetrac LSD or AST 5100 with AST dampers and Swift springs???

Torn between the two mods. I currently have 4'' catless dps, remus race axel back exhaust, and Afe Intake.
What do you think would be the better way to go???

Sport package? If yes, go for the LSD. If no, do the coils.

would a set of stiffer springs or anti roll bars be a more effective way to help handling? I would still be able to afford one of them if i went with the LSD

If I had to do over all the mods I've done, I would have started with the LSD mod first. Then sway bars plus M3 bushings because the rear sub frame has to be dropped.

Power modding is kind of pointless with one wheel drive.

Get the LSD. I'd get it even if I didn't track my car. It makes that much of a difference - every time you step on the gas.

Do some research though, lots of info on this forum about other things to get with an LSD ... don't just spend money which is what it looks like you're doing.
