Personally i found that the ally steering rack with bearings make a massive handling improvement as the ally doesnt bend like the plastic/graphite ones. The ally f+r hubs and carriers are a good idea as they dont snap or bend cause there so small and strong. The ally wishbones are a very strong but just make sure you run the standard plastic parts to hold the wishbone pins in under the diffs cause if you have a hard hit the ally will not snap so the plastic bits will and they are very easy amd cheap to replace. Also it makes your ride look sweet but its costs alot but is well worth it in the end

ya, but ceramic berings are alot of work and you always have to keep them clean. although they will make the car alot faster. I would just stick with the ones u got unless they are rusted,
