I need you guyz to help me decide what to get, first my main goal is to make my astro take corners lik nothing! I know my first step is to lower it, so that i can stabilize the center force of gravity. but I didnt really want to lower it permanently only bcuz i live in NY, and i was also looking at sum sway bars on this site>>>> WHAT DO U GUYS THINK I SHOULD DO AND GET???? http://www.eautoworks.com/search-ALL/mk ... -ca115.htm

Think stiffining...suspension it is!! Sway bars, springs, wider wheels on low profile tires. You say you dont want to lower it, but in reallity if you want it to "take corners lik nothing", you gotta give it a lowering job. Ever seen any 4x4 win the Daytona 500? Mine is lowered and everything, and it takes corners like...
a lowered van :driving: . You think the Nascar Trucks are really trucks?? It would be awesome to set an Astro body on a race chassis. So, dream on.
