What are your goals? Daily driver, track time, auto-x, canyon carver, stance, etc.

What other mods do you have?

How many miles on your car?

You could consider the Pedders OEM style top mounts, which would be easy but you'd probably want more for the track. No change in ride height or bump travel.
