I do have a pair of coil lowering springs that I do not need that might improve the ride height and handling.

Yes. I believe it improves stability. The Export Brace & Monte Carlo improve structural integrity.

Wow! Seems to me that you are doing a little more than just "freshening up" that car Neil.
