An alignment and to go slow over speed bumps also shorter rear sway bar end links are recommended.

Mods? Yea, I got mods ...

You only need shorter endlinks, not a sway bar.

And spring cups, tie rod ends and tires you only need to replace if they are worn out. The ones you have now won't effect anything when you lower the car(unless of course they are worn out).


Outer connecting rods??? whaaa???

Energy suspension makes endlink kits in various sizes, I've found them at autozone before.
