What is the best way to tighten up the front end of a 2000 GV. I have relatively new Strutmaster EZ-Struts and new michelin tires, but I want more responsiveness.

What is the condition of the tie rods and ball joints?
What about the sway bar links and mounts?

Set 3.5 degrees negative camber using Moog or similar offset strut mounting bolts (top and bottom), reduce toe-in to zero degrees, increase tire pressures to max rated less 4 pounds cold.

Stops tire scrub, tracks like it's on rails, turns in much better than stock settings.

The 16" or 17" wheels would improve responsiveness as well. A shorter sidewall reacts marginally quicker to driver input. I don't think anybody makes poly bushing, you'd have to cast a set yourself. All at the cost of ride quality though.

Definately make sure all the worn components are replaced, it will make a huge difference in ride quality. Im about to change my control arm bushings later this evening.
