There's really no "full capability" set up, it's more of "what's comparable to your style of driving" As "Perf" mentioned lowering would be a good start - new struts would also give you a good base to start with. After that it's "SKY & your budget" is the limits. One big thing alot of people forget to consider is "dry weight". Are you going to carry gear in trunk, load it with a ton of stereo gear, passengers? Every 10lbs you add are going to change it's handling characteristics so don't forget to consider the weight when making ANY performance mods. Tires & wheels are another mod people don't consider a major change, which can get you into problems. Bottom line: it's a balance issue - consider EVERYTHING as a total pkge instead of throwing stuff at it to compensate for other changes you've made along the way, your wallet and reliability will thank you in the long run.
