I have an '86 vert and i really want to upgrade my suspension. I want this thing to handle the curves like a dream. I was considering the Brothers Performance Kit including BBK springs, kyb struts and shocks, and all the proper bushings. Anyone have i any other suggestions, please inform me.

First thing you have to do with a convertible is brace it...weld in subframe connectors at the very least. I can't stress this enough, becuase with a flimsy body like these and a stiff suspension, a significant part of "suspension" movement is actually body flex. Get rid of that so the suspension can actually do its job.

If you want to handle curves like a dream you're going to have to forget about KYB's and urethane bushings. There is a TON of info both here and on the road race/autocross forum, I suggest popping a bottle and making friends with the search function.
