Suspension

I've had my '05 GTO since summer of '05 and so far it's stock except for a Corsa Exhaust and track tires. I'm trying to find the most extreme race suspension set up possible. Comfort and money is no concern. I've been looking through the suspension mods available on tbyrnemotorsports.com, but I'm really looking to deck her suspension out.

Any ideas or sugguestions?

Thanks.

If comfort and money is not a concern, get a Z06

~$2k in parts, ~$2k installation. Worth every damned penny.

Going with all Pedders stuff instead of using the Konis would be substantially cheaper, since there will be less cutting / hacking / tearing necessary. I went with Konis since (1) Adjustable Konis offer excellent tuning possibilities and (2)I really pile the miles on, and The Mates in Australia overwhelmingly said that the Konis were tohe way to go over Pedders.

When you say race suspension, do you mean drag or road racing?
If you drag race you need this to hang with the big boys.
