Thanks for all of that Nik.

The shocks are adjustable, and are at 66% stiff (what it came at) though I could afford to go a little softer now that I don't have a lip kit and I raised the car height.

I do agree that the tires are my weak point here. I'm using Hankook Ventus V12, and I'm not particularly impressed. They're good, but not any better than my winters lol.

It's a good point that you say that having a front sway bar is a good balance, since it keeps the car more level than no sway bars, but allows both rear wheels on the ground better so the lack of LSD isn't as much a problem. I could certainly try disconnecting the rear and leaving the front.
