New suspension upgrade??

Hey guys, i'll keep it short, basically I am looking to just kinda bedazzle my suspension area, and i'm just wondering what ideas you guys might have? Not anything extreme just looking to reinforce the suspensions area.

How about a nice suspension lift instead of the spacers, a tubular upper control arm, upgraded shocks, possibly remote reservior. Then again, that's a lot of coin just for a look.

Now does that mean that I have to buy a new kit with the coilovers, or can I buy them individually and install/replace what I have as far as the spacers?

It is a new coilover kit. The coil gives you the lift.

Your rear shocks look like crap too man. I see some broken shocks in your near future.

Oh okay cool thanks man.

And yeah, that's why I didn't plan on doing any real offroading until I reinforced everything under there ahaa.
Being a teen the mod process is slow and cheap for me ahaa.
