Wondering if anyone has upgraded the Grand Sport FE1 suspension to the FE3 (sport suspension) or just substituted the heavier bars...
Would like a little stiffer suspension in the rear for Autocross!

Thanks

Just add the Z07 sway bar.
Add coil overs for and even better handling ride

Thanks guys..
Wish I had the Z51 now...... but I guess I'll go with
supernatural400's suggestion. Would lowering the rear end be
beneficial or is this mainly a cosmetic approach?

none right now :(
You can get the Z51 shocks too, if you want, they aren't nearly as expensive as coil overs (don't work as well either, but as a cost/benefit decision go with the shocks) with Z51 shocks, sway bar, and lowering the car about an inch, you will handle much better... On the down side (no pun intendid) you will have a bit harder time driving your car around town due to the cars lower stance

you could go with the Bilsteins and have them revalved to racing specs, Of course if you also have FX3 you'll need to reprogramm the FX3 ECM to compensate for this. All the SuperNatural cars have the Bilsteins revaled
