It is indeed a fun car to drive.I am planning on new PST Polygraphite body bushings this year,as well as some new front end goodies from Mark @ SC&C.I have one of his Street-Comp Stage 2 + kits waiting to go on.It consists of a pair of SPC adjustable upper control arms with Delrin bushings,Howe X-Tra tall upper ball joints & Howe Tall lower ball joints.And since the lower control arms have to come off for this job,I also have a set of Delrin bushings from Global West for the LCA's.Tubular LCA's would have been nice,but they werent in the budget.Heres some pictures;

I took the adjustable arms apart and put Anti-Seize on them after reading on my Monte site about the possibility of them seizing up;

Heres the lower bushings;
