lowering and shocks are inportant, but i think tires are most important. I have front and reat strut bars, sways, and springs, and my suspension stil sucks due to stock tires (195/60/15 Dunlop SP 4000)

yeah i guess you'll notice better cornering abilities with the lowering springs and the wheels may help (not really sure confused)

the suspension does not suck because of the tires, the grip does. there is a difference in body roll, and the tires folding over in hard cornering

Bigger rims make for a worse ride because there is less rubber. They just look cool.

Oh, I know that i was just meant that the handling sucks due to the crappy tires not the suspension. I count tires as a suspension part.

It makes for a more rough ride, but it will handle a lot better larger surface and less sidewall to bulge when driving fast in corners. Going bigger than 19's are more for show and will be a 35 or even 30. 17's with a 40 or 45 should be more comfortable.
