Default Thinking about some suspension "tuning" for 19 TTS Cab...

I've realized that I want my 19 TTS cab for a longer term car and think I want to start playing with the suspension a bit. I come from a racing background, and know most of the options for strict performance etc etc. I've also done various suspension mods on turbos of the past I've had that were for, and not for the track, but I'm kind of looking for an interesting balance here. I'm looking for the best overall "package" I can do to my car that doesn't really "reinvent" what's going on there (so no old school adjustable coil over need here), but really makes it something of a gt handling weapon, even more than it currently is. My current interest lies within possibly changing the rubber thrust arm bushings to tarret or similar solid bushings (I do believe that will take a little of the normal road castor changes and give the car a little more responsive feel to it), and investigating possibly a few select GT3 control arm/sway bar options. Im trying to not lower the car too much, so if I were to go with a route Id do the HAS KW springs and barely lower it a half an inch all around. Has anyone played with control arm changes with these cars and how it affects the handling of the car/noise inside etc etc?

Otherwise, I guess Ill aim for the HAS springs, the solid bushings and some adjustable GT3 sway bars...should work pretty well...


Thoughts folks?

My setup-

1. H&R springs
2. All the rear dog bones with spherical bushings
3. Front control arms by Porsche Motorsport with spherical bushings

I had very good lap times with the stock suspension, H&R lowered springs, front control arms upgrade, camber plates, and some solid bushings in the front and rear from Tarrett. For street driving, and given your circuit background, I think this setup will be very satisfactory.

I have full KW competition suspension now and still have not touched the sway bars even with racing slicks, have never felt any need to change sway bars.

How much added noise did the solid bushings/hows the compliance with the bushings? The control arms seem like a natural upgrade...did you need to mess with any of the other parts for those upgrades alone? RE upright changes etc etc...
