It will increase considerably, probably night and day difference.

Re: wondering if my handling will be any better

Those upgrades will help out too if you ever take your lude to the track or legal racing in general You might have a lot put into your engine but stability's needed too

Re: wondering if my handling will be any better

lol....

I went kyb agx under neuspeed sport... had some "shuddering" issues...

...went with hyperflex poly bushings... (trailing arms(you may want these...), sway bar, AND master kit..) and the lude is now on rails...

if the curves are more important to you than straight-line speed, you will be pleased!

Re: wondering if my handling will be any better

Ive heard some bad things about the poly bushings on our cars. I wouldnt waste my time or money on those. If your stock bushings are still good I would spend that money on a good rear sway bar instead. but yes, you will notice a big difference.

The username 117 on honda-tech is the guy that turned me away from poly bushings since he has tried them and he actually autox's his prelude.

Re: wondering if my handling will be any better
