    Depends on how much money you want to spend. A lot of us run a Custom Coilover Setup on the majority of our cars because it allows for ride height adjustments and basically turns your Festiva into a Race Car! You can follow THIS LINK for details on that setup. All together the Coilover setup will cost you about $650 and some garage time to make a couple modifications. If you don't want to spend the whole $650, I highly recommend doing at least the rear coilover setup which will run you about $200 but allows you to level the car out and makes the car drive much better and a lot less scary on the highway.

    If those are too expensive you can pickup struts for all 4 corners from RockAuto or any autoparts store. I have spent as little as $48 for all 4 if there is a decent rebate going on.
