EF Chassis and lowerd suspansion

Hello everyone i'm new here
my name is omri and i'm an EF (ED4) sedan Proud owner and i have some Questions :

There are many who say that the EF hatch Chassis is one of the best FWD Chassis, and it very good on track .

1) now i want to ask you all sedan owner , and who that have lowerd suspansion or coil overs, how the sedan Chassis on track or a very twisted roads ?
If it is built right in terms of suspension and tires, is this chassis have a Potential to be good on track ?

I'm at the beginning of my car project, and the most important thing for me because I liked a lot of grip and the vehicle's behavior, is improved suspension, damper's and springs  ...

i want to lower my sedan on KYB shock and weitec 40 m"m lowerd springs on this Wheels (175/65/R14) for now and later probably will be 185/60/R14 on toyo R888 Tires .

2) do you think the car will be good whit this parts ?
It is very hard to get after market parts for the EF sedan here , and its hard to import them.

i want the car to be stiff, but not to much Because its a daily car, i will glad if you have another prats to Offer


Sorry for the large amount of questions, but thank you all for the  help

this is my ED4 baby as it looks today ..

Welcome to the Forum!!!

OK Question 1, In my opinion  yes the car can flex without the correct suspension, i would get coilovers if you have the right funding, FYI my buddy gave me some advice" it's doesn't matter you can get the most cheapest suspension parts, spring/or coil, tie bar,  front track bar, front & rear strut bar, camber kit, LCA's etc ,The main think is have the shop dialed in the suspension numbers you want it setup.

I am going the same route but rolling on H & R Race springs which are Stiff w/ stock shocks. LCA's ,rear tie bar, Front & Rear strut bar car is all so a daily driven.

Next Second Question what is your budget? surf the web some sites have better deals then others. Do you have any shops in your area that can help you out?

How convenient for your vehicle? he is not to bumpy ?  

i'm from israel, here the EG models, EK an so on are very Popular, and you can get anything for them, but for the EF is a big problem.

my budget is in shekels. and the Available of accessories and parts for the EF sedan is low .

er have some shops for aftermarket modify parts ,
here i can buy weitec coilovers HICON GT/TX for 4000 shekels, that it Around1025 $

orr KYB shock for 1700 shekels (Around 435 $) and weitec SPORT F spring's for 1200 shekels ( Around 308$)

here modify is very expansive , but i will figure something.

another problem is that you cant import every part, Parts are considered as a change in structure or child, or in the vehicle's safety, are not offered for import and need to get special approval from the Ministry of Transportation and the Israel Standards Institute

i can buy also Eibach product , Can you recommend something?

i want that the car will be stiff, but not to much, and Reduce roll angle of the chassis.

OIC well for me any car part you need we ca get here in the States.
If money is tight it's worth saving for good parts that fix your style,
