Any Way to Increase the Turning Performance?

Any way to increase the turning performance?

My last car was a 1995 Plymouth Neon Sport and I could throw that car into corners without worry , but with my Colbalt it doesn't feel as safe.

Is your car lowered? Lowering your car will give you better handling. My Cobalt and there was a big difference in handling after I put my Eibach Sportlines on.

lower, better tires, rear bar. Your a base balt, what do ya expect. Do not mean to sound like an ass, but I say it cause i had an LS at one time, its not a cornerer or anything more than a nice commuter.

Lowering springs or better yet coil overs, sway bars front and back, rears you can buy, upgraded control arms, good tires, lighter rims, strut tower brace errrmmm, i dunno what else.


Does not play well with others.

(10:36:43 AM) Yield2No1: Then you tell me that a cobalt TC doesnt have an optional rear diff

My current suspension setup on my 2.2 LT
SSC springs
SS/TC Shocks & struts
SS/SC Front sway bar
TTR Rear sway bar
DC Sports strut bar

The car handles great! The front sway bar was really needed when adding the rear sway bar. Makes it so your not so rear end happy!
