    Get some front and rear strut braces when you get the spring and bilstein setup mate, will make a MASSIVE difference to the car.

    Something like this, makes a fair difference



    Also, after driving my old corolla with out a strut brace then bolting one on (lent it to a mate) this difference in turn in response and front end grip was very, very noticeable.
