depends on the car.
I lowered my WRX and my E30 for performance (they weren't super low and they actually had a bit of a reverse rake so I could increase suspension travel at the front wheels). My WRX was probably the most complete with bushings, springs, struts, STI Steering rack, adjustable tubular sway bars front and rear, poly endlinks front and rear, Group N Strut tops, strut tower bars, subframe reinforcements, outrigger bushings, diff bushings, fender braces and even a rear differential support.
I lowered my GTI because the stock suspension was sky high and it looked stupid. I didn't do anything else, because I never planned on racing it. It was mainly for looks.

IMO, this car is a bit too heavy for me to race it and because it's my only mode of transport, I probably won't. I'm just putting sport suspension in and tires. I'm not slamming it though. I will say, this car wallows and understeers like a pig right now. I blame the 75k OEM-replacement suspension and the 195/60/15 snow tires though. I REALLY have to slow down for two highway interchanges on my commute.

If money were no object... I would legitimately consider airbags for looks and comfort. Kind of a VIP-style look to it or something. Who knows. The car's main purpose right now is a comfortable, baby-safe cruiser/commuter.

It all depends on the car though. I've got plans to build a variety of cars in the future:
Nissan Fairlady Z (S30)
Volkswagen Type 1 (wouldn't mind a frame dragging convertible)
Porsche 930

and as for 'all this...' it was just the one post and no one came to play... even with abominations they may have spotted.

I'd say your tires are the reason it feels like poop. My car has 100k on everything, and drives great. It's a little bit softer than what I'm used to, but it can still carve corners like nobody's business.

I forgot to post a price. I'm looking for $700 plus shipping to your location, unless you can pick them up in Dallas. Thx.
