Stock suspension question

Hi there,

I got a stock GT for about a month now and noticed that the car starts to sway a bit when Im doing high speeds. Is this a well known problem? And will lowering the car help out a lot? I really like how the car handles, but the suspension seems to be way too comfy for a sporty drive.

i think you might need an alignment, thats all i can really think off...and check your tire pressure too.

Tire pressure is fine. Allignment seems to be fine as well. Im talking pretty high speeds here, say 110+

I think the problem is the fact that you are taking turns at 110+ in a stock sport-compact?
