Most *any* factory car can be greatly improved with the use of the aftermarket springs and shocks/dampers. Poly bushings are sold for most every car that folks would like to improve the handling for, from Japanese to Saab & BMW. Larger rear bars are available for most all of these cars too. So, none of this is earth shattering. The reason is that most cars are sold with suspension tuning for the average public, not the "sport" driver. That said, Abbott does have some _other_ improvements in their "viggen rescue kit". Most of these have to do with taking the slop out of the front suspension that the factory builds in. These are good for ride and quiet, bad for handling. Let's not forget that marketing has a great impact on what engineering produces and they are not marketing against sport drivers for the most part. Bob
