Yes Kings standard height springs & KYB struts is a good combination with a 2" lift kit. Improves handling a little, improves load carrying capacity without being harsh

It's a lot of trouble to go to for a viscous LSD. It's better than an open diff but not by much. Get a clutch LSD from the RS (RX?) Liberty or a JDM WRX STi, this is what I have & it's excellent. You...

A "good" alignment, as opposed to just "in spec", makes such a difference to handling. My last alignment, although in spec, was terrible. Somehow they lost some caster & the car didn't steer properly...
