I drive an '04 Spec V. I want to know what the best bolt-ons are to improve handling for street/autox use. I already have the Nismo Suspension and sway bars, but I'm not sure what to buy next. I've been looking at the Nismo hard rubber bushings, and the Tanabe sustec underbrace, does anyone have either of these installed? how much of an improvement have you noticed?

I have a 4pt LTB and the ES front LCA bushings which both are essentially the same thing as the Nismo bushings and the "underbrace". The underbrace/ LTB is a definite plus. The bushings is just icing on the cake to remove what little slop in the suspension is left. You may wanna look in the AutoX rules. IIRC having the underbrace/LTB will bump you up a class.

thanks for the info....once things pick up a bit a work im going to go ahead and buy the tanabe brace. as for being put in a new class in the autocross, that doesn't make a differance to me, i just like to race against my own times anyway. Im never the fastest guy out there, i always end up toward the bottom of the list but there are other much nicer much more powerful cars further down the list than me. my last time out i beat an '08 chevy corvette Z06 by 1.7 seconds. just shows power is nothing with out control, thats why i want to spend a little money into better handling rather than a lot of money into horsepower
