    July 2012: long awaited handling upgrade

    Yes it was finally time for some upgrade parts, on the shopping list:
    - Jap lsd disk brake rear end
    - front and rear swaybars
    - adjustable panhard rod.

    Sway bars and panhard rod: For these parts I contacted AJPS, my mate had a whiteline panhard but I wasn't much of a fan of how it had to be removed to be adjusted where as AJPS offered a product that would allow it to be done on car. As for swaybars Dave recommended I went for only a mild increase in size, I cant remember what size it was now but they worked well.

    JDM diff: I managed to source this locally from a Japanese parts wrecker, it cost me $950 for a complete setup, it did however need some maintenance, after pulling it apart and checking everything over, rebuilding the brake calipers, getting the disks machined, and putting new bearings and seals in I was about another $150 out of pocket so $1100 all up which I was still fairly happy about.

    Well once again I made a mistake and the result was a slight tap with a guard rail (not the good kind of tap!)
    I was driving on a route I know very well was actually going pretty good until I came up to a corner with more pace then normal, normally I'd down change but it didn't feel like I needed to this time, I decided to change gear and it resulted in some compression lock and a wriggle along the rail.

    I replaced the front guard and parker and put a few cable ties around the broken grill clips.

    After this I began to learn heel-toe and abit better driving techniques and im actually happy this happened.
