What model Yokohama? How much did you spend? What size?mr x said:i already have new tries, yohahmmas, they're pretty sticky
rear sway bars arn't stock are they? if no then i don't have one
Although the H4s are a pretty sticky tire for an all-season; there's definatley a lot more grip to be had with a performance summer tire. Of course, there'll be a trade off of treadlife and price, but the difference in grip is outstanding.mr x said:my tires are:
205/45/16 AVID H4s though a connection i got them for $60 a peice, normal price was $110

If you're looking at a nice upgrade in the future, consider some lightweight 15" wheels instead of those 16s. Those look kind of heavy, and you'll get a nice improvement on all sides by switching to some lighter 15s
Unless of course you like the wheels, then screw it
neko said:my key point in suggesting the illuminas was that if you're spending 200 on Tokico HP's, you're halfway to a set of illuminas anyway. And you can't do anything with the HP's. They are no stiffer than new stock suspension. But if you want to auto-x, no stock strut will be anywhere near stiff, and the illuminas will do just that in a few seconds. Then you just set them right back to full soft for everyday driving when you're done. I guarantee you'll love having them. Plus check with all the local stock-class auto-x'ers... any of them not run adjustable shocks? Its probably the biggest mod allowed to cars in stock class.
I certainly 2nd sway bars, however check with the stock-class rules these days (if this is a concern, not sure how much auto-x'ing you'll be doing. but it pays not to out-class yourself unintentionally). I'm not sure how many sway bars you're allowed to change in stock, or even if you can add the rear if you didn't already have it.
And yes, skip springs, in auto-x they will only toss you out of stock (where as struts don't) and you'll have to deal with lowered ride height (the main reason most people change springs anyway), which you mentioned you don't like.
