I agree, why on earth are you taking corners on public roads so fast that the your rear end kicks out and that you have body roll?

What if there is some kid or family crossing the road round the corner and since you are going so fast that you pile into them?

Are you that irresponsible to cause danger to yourself and others?



HEY MATE I WAS ASKING A SIMPLE F**KING QUESTION, IF U READ MY BLOODY POST, U WOULD SEE THAT I DIDNT SAY THAT IT HAPPENS TO ME, I WANNA BE ABLE TO FIX IT FIRST COS I JUST GOT THE CAR, AND ITS ALL STOCK. I HAVE SEEN WHAT STOCK DOES TO BA'S THATS Y I ASKED THE QUESTION, GOT A PROBLEM THEN GET LOST.

in reguards to the hissy fit, um ?yes?

Whiteline bars will level the vehicle out heaps, as will a good set of bushes & shackles on the existing bar. Koni shocks will make it like God sucking your d**k. Idea is that the initial 'shock' load of the car rolling will be taken by the 'shock' as a pose to the untorsioned bar receiving a whopping great load. You'd be amazed how much wear a shock will see in a short time. after 100,000k you can pretty much through them out, I havent seen a good set come off a car yet. Even new stock shocks you'd notice a better feel.

I imagine the lack of rear grip must be the cold icy roads WA experience this time of year
