Next up?

Ok, so my 02 LX standard sedan is completely stock except for the AEM short ram intake that i put in yesterday. I'm not sure what i want to do next. Magnaflow catback exhaust, Eibach springs (1 inch lower), Revo short shifter, or Ingall's engine torque damper. Right now i'm just looking at spending about $400 so i can't really just get it all at once. Is there something i should get first and is there any negatives to any of the things i've named? The only things i'm worried about are wheel rub from the springs and the "vibrations" that some people say are pretty bad from the damper.

I'd start working on the suspension before anything else. If your road conditions aren't absolutely horrible, I'd consider dropping it at least 1.5" on sportlines if you're set on going with eibach springs. Then get your camber kit as well, install it all, get an alignment, and that's probably around 400 bucks.

You should maybe check out some coilovers depending on how deep your pockets go. That way you get good handling with adjustability and the ability to raise or lower your car as needed.

suspension is your best bet. and don't touch the engine. just go swap instead of header, intake and ish.

Well, i just bought the car (payin' it off) and it's really just something reliable for college so i'm not changing anything major right now. I figure intake (already got it), cat-back, short shifter, tint, keyless entry, rims, head/tail lights, front lip, and maybe WAY down the road a suspension upgrade with some good stuff. Right now i've decided i'm getting the short shifter and next week i'm suppose to get scheduled for my tint and hopefully keyless entry also. Then like mid-february i'm gunna get the magnaflow cat-back. After that it's just gunna be stuff for looks.

Why does suspension seem to be so important for an every day driver? I go less than a mile to school and less than a mile to work and it's like completely straight roads. I know that having all the power in the world is pointless if you can't control it, but an 02 lx isn't very powerful... ha.
