I'm thinking of updating hubs, control arms and upper link mounts. It already has the better diff and dampeners.

Any recommendations?
I made a thicker rear sway bar out of 0.062" music wire. It helps free up the rear end, as the wider rear VTA tires tend to make the car push. The sway bar mounts needed the hole slightly enlarged to accept it.

Also, a front diff with light oil will reduce front tire scrub in long sweepers. I'm running 50K.
