@Devarshi, read the details in my garage, body kit is in for sure.

@Artofzen, i don't feel that the ride has become bumpy. Its not harsh at all actually. But is it cuz i'm running on 30 or 32PSI at the moment.

Aveo is more comfy, upmarket and is of better quality, but surely not as fun as the Lancer.

Aveo can be a more of a family car while the Lancer is like a modders/tuners car.

In the end, for comfort, refinement et all, the Aveo. For hard driving and lots of fun, the Lancer!!

Guys,
Can someone tell me if i can get strutbraces or adjust the current shocks. And which one will be the better thing to do? I don't feel the ride is harsh at the moment, so i guess making it stiffer won't affect all that much.

And how much will the struts cost?? Also the steering shakes a lot while turning fast, what could it be? Just done the wheel balancing and alignment 2weeks ago!
