Default Tips for my first Type R

I just got the CW DC5 JDM Type R. Prior, I had an M4 and TTRS. I know it's never going to drive like those cars but what can I do suspension wise to improve overall handling. I am not going to race the car, it will be a daily, but I want the best ride out of it possible, especially on the highway. By the way the car is completely stock. Thanks in advance!

Just from experience, I had 2 sets of suspension on my CTR while I lived in the UK. The first set I had were KW Variant 2 which I really loved until I blew out the front while tracking the car. The next set which I actually liked even better and were half the price were BC Racing with bearing top hats. I tracked my CTR nearly every month for over 2 years with a couple of trips to the Nurburgring and SPA-Francorchamps on this suspension with no problems. As for comfort, the BC's were slightly more comfortable than my KW's. But my setup was for circuit racing.

If you want comfort and still maintain sporty driving, I say try looking into an AirLift suspension system.

thanks for the reply. I never thought about an airlift system. Ill
check into it. I was originally looking at eibach or bilstein.
