Coilovers or lowering springs at least

Thicker Front Anti Rollbar
Thicker Rear Anti Rollbar
Front Strut bar
Front Lower Strut bar
Rear Strut bar
Rear Tie bar

Good quality tyres - toyo, falken, yokohoma

Good good you could try moving the battery and screen wash bottle to the back to even out the weight a little more.

I dont know which shocks I will use but there is a company in Denmark that has a nice selection for the AE101 but their site is only in danish..

I was thinking lately about their KAW Performance kit and that would lower my car 55 mm front and 45 mm back with shocks and springs, will that make my car to low?

I like driving on twisty roads and that is how I want my car setup.

mine sits roughly around 60mm all round i think, handles really well and sticks to the ground through corners, but since i took front strut bar off and h-brace off, you can really feel the difference

Sorry for asking but what is an h-brace and what does it do?

My car currently has stock suspension and has 175/65-14 tires and I think the handling is good now.

EDIT: Miib: Do you have a photo of your car as it sits now? I wanna see what a 60mm lowered Corolla looks like.

Remote-mounting the battery I can understand, but the washer bottle? It'd weigh 3-4kg tops when completely full of water, and a couple of hundred grams empty - moving it around the car will do SFA to affecting handling. Remember that even if everything in the car is exactly balanced front-back and left-right, then you still have a ~100kg (around 10% of the weight of the car) driver sitting to one side and towards the front which will throw everything out. Unless of course you take that into account when you corner-weight the car, and if you're that pedantic about weight distribution then you HAVE to do corner weights (if anything to adjust coilovers etc to even out the ride height).

Personally, the main reason why I'd be remote-mounting anything from the engine bay isn't for weight distribution, it would be for space.

Right now I just want a better handling car cause I love driving on mountain roads and for some strange reason, when I drive on those types of roads my car uses less fuel then when I'm driving on the highway..

What kind of shocks should I go for (or should I keep the stock ones and wait until summer to buyt coilovers?)
I'm using 30mm loweringsprings and with the stock shocks my cars suspension is alot firmer then it used to be at speeds below 45/50 mph.

If your goal is coilovers, then I wouldn't waste money on shocks now!
