    TWM Performance. I think I was actually the first person to get them. They had to redo a set due to Hyundai changing end links on the cables.

    Another great first mod would be new tires. The stock Kumho's are junk. Wet, dry, snow, they are loud and dont grip well.

    Id also suggest getting into the habit of cleaning and treating the pleather seats on a regular basis.

    So for me, the choice was simple: 65A bushings for the lower rear motor mount, which was ~$30. This also reduces wheel hop a good bit.

    The second thing I noticed was the unstable wandering steering. Rigid collar kit for $55 alleviated that almost completely.

    It wasn't until later when pushing the car around turns over pavement ripples that I noticed the rear end get nervous.

    Summary of my top three must-do initial mods:
    1. 65A/75A rear motor mount bushings (~$30)
    2. Rigid collars ($55-80)
    3. Pierce rear torsion bar ($155)
    I have all the same mods, but did it in the exact opposite order.. All these things are good cheap mods.. When i left the dealer i hopped on the freeway straight to 80mph around the curve and the ass was so unstable. As soon as i got home i looked online to see what was available to fix this and i found the Rear Torsion bar.. I had the car less than 24 hours before i put bought and put it on.. Then i noticed that the body felt detached from the suspension.. ALmost like they were not completely connected, the Rigid collars and some lower chassis bracing fixed this.. The engine mount i bought to try it out and loved it... However for me i dont drag race or do hard pulls from a dead stop. I do mostly highway driving and drive about 200-300 miles a day which is why i did mine in the order i did.. But for about $250 you can have all three and highly recommended!

    I also installed on the ground with no jack stands when i had stock springs. Its not to hard, its literally 4 bolts and can be installed with in about 30min to about an hour depending on your mechanical skill. As far as warranties most companies will replace these if they ever break. As far as factory warranty issues there is none.. You will still be covered 100%

    Get the rigid collars, engine mounts, or replacement bushings, strut brace, rear torsion bar. I believe in getting the suspension dialed, then go after the power.

    My suspension is this:

    PMS Rear Torsion bar
    PMS Lower 2pt Tie bar
    PMS Race Version Strut bar
    PMS Front Sway bar
    TurboSocks Rigid collars
    Ksport Coilovers
    PMS Rollcage (Adds stiffness to the chassis and does make a difference in the way the car feels)
    PMS Rear Camber/Toe kit (does help the suspension set up work to its fullest)
    Professionally measured alignment and corner balanced by a race alignment shop

    But! I do feel the biggest improvement was the Torsion bar even for the driver that doesnt want to fix up their cars which is why i posted this thread.. Everything everyone is saying on here holds truth and all these parts will make a substantial difference on how your car behaves. All of which are great depending on the budget and what you are trying to accomplish with the car (Or driving habits). However what you will see in this thread is that everyone has a Rear torsion bar regardless of where it is in the their list... Thanks for all the Input guys/gals!!

    Interesting stuff. So for $250.00 I can buy all those mods? Wow...way cheaper to mod these things. Just need someone to install them. Any suggestions in the Maryland area?
