Im getting my suspension redone in a little over a week and I need some twisty roads to break it in on. Does anyone have an idea where on the island I can test the cornering capabilities of the new system? I would like to be able to go at least 40 mph on these roads

try the loop Parkway that Runs from the entrance at Jones Beach to Point lookout, or try the Hairpin Turn at the Van wyck by Kennedy intl., Back in the 70' and 80's when i built Race Cars this is where i used to test them, i once Put a BMW 533 in that Corner at 75 mph she just sat there and took it without a whimper.

the best though were the old interborough parkway before they "fixed" it.

exit off the southern state going eastbound at the seaford Oyster Bay Expressway going south. its an s turn and I used to time my mustang to 60mph thru it before entering the expressway---guess I can only do 55 now, damn sissies
well no helmets for my bicycle, (I am older than 12) and I think I will drink from a garden hose and run around with scissors
