Default Re: How To Improve Handling

according to that thread I would need the rear sway bar to qualify for the first catagory, since the max already has one and an after market one would be the same thing just thicker I am kind of skeptical but I will get it and see

you guys think that should be my next mob?

It is kind of irritating how nissan made the car look sporty, just the Z engine in it, 4dsc marketing BUT made it ride like a regular sedan

you guys think that should be my next mod?

yeah I have a buddy who says his Supra rode really soft until he started modding. i guess automakers try to please as many people as possible and go soft like Metallica in the 90s hahaha

KYB does not show an AGX for the 6th gen. At least not the last time I checked. is this something they made and discontinued?

Yes indeed. You have to grind down a section thats on the top, on the skinny shaft (dont know whats its called) and the bigger modification is in thebottom section, you have to bend the heck out of the ears to clear the knuckle on the car. You also need a longer bolt to go through. Its worth the time though
