    If it's a v6 I would spend hundreds of dollars on tubular suspension yet.

    Get an 8.8 rear end with better gearing.
    I imagine the stock suspension is worn. Replacing ball joints and bushings with a better valved shock/strut. Maybe a nice set of springs.

    If anything a tubular rear arm upgrade would be better but read up on the bushings to use. Poly bushings in the rear can actually worsen bind.

    Also I agree with being able to tune your vehicle.

    Be honest with you, only buy things that can support your overall goal. 5000, get a handheld tuner, windstar intake, get a free-flowing restrictive less exhaust for turbo, bigger fuel pump and injectors, get an inter-cooler and piping, bov and wastegate, flip the stock headers and begin cutting and welding from the headers to the turbo. keep in mind the exhaust exit from the turbo is a 3in pipe that will have to make its way back to the exhaust pipes

    currently this car has 235/55 r17 and they rub on the inside at max turn. so im thinking about going with 225/55 r17 in front and 255/55 r17 in rear. tax time go with an eibach suspension
