Default got New Susp,Bush,Sway,Strut Bar ....review

OK I went to china for a month and left the PT outdoor for the whole time andit start right up being a 2001 with 71k

Now I just have my whole new complete suspension installed yesterday. The new parts I got are:

1)KYB GR2 front and back
2)Polyurthane Bushing for the entire car
3)Susp Tech sway bar front and rear
4)ebay strut bar
5)New OEM limited ed springs
6)New Tire for my chrome 16s

And I have to say that the PT should feel like this out of the factory. even with all of these the PT still can't match another sporty car I have....Impreza or can't even beat the handling or comfort of a A6 wagon............BUT it's alot better than stock WHY better.......the floody softy bouncy feel of the car is gone.....steering is sharper tighter and u don't have that wabblely feel when u change lane........The car con't seem to dip into lump and bounce up so much in bumps and with the sway bars u turn amost flat BUT u still have MAJOR understeer......Also the car feel a little bouncier in a good sporty way........the only thing about this whole set up is that it get noisier by a little.

I think this is the best over all set up(comf and handl) for the PT....I don't even bother lowering it cause u can't really drive faster with lowering springs on real road constantly slowing down for bumps.....

Well, you COULD lower the rear only - it helps handling and I dont' slow for bumps any more than stock.
I suspect the increase in noise is from new tires....

QSD - All those poly bushings would increase the noise as well.

C-town - Do you by chance still have your stock rear swaybar?
