After driving for a week, I could say that I can really feel the improvement on cornering and handling. The steering is a lot more stable in high speeds(100+ mph).

For $200...this is really a mod that is highly reccommended!

Congrats man! I just don't understand some people who don't believe in this type of product. It's a performance product!
