The nice thing about bars is they are springs, but unlike lowering springs they don't really effect ride unless you get MASSIVELY stiff bars on pretty crappy roads. They add wheel rate when you want...

And now you know why I don't make, or use, or recommend HUGE rear swaybars, and certainly not without a massive front. You used a solid 25mm bar set full stiff. I make a hollow 25mm rear bar (very...

Some things to consider.

Take your time, ESPECIALLY right now because you might find that some killer shocks are more accessible in a few weeks.

Don't skimp on shocks. That includes assuming...

Thanks for the recommendation!

I can't say I'd do either of the original ideas. One gets you better shocks, but springs that are probably too much for daily driving (I'm familiar with them), the...

I sure do have Koni's in stock, no problem.

As for springs, we'd have to discuss... lots of options and what I recommend will depend a lot on what the main priority is. Weigh ride vs. stiffness...

ESP index doesn't suck, it's very accurate. ESP cars are as fast and sometimes faster than Super Stock cars. :) Trouble is you need a well prepped ESP car. But that's not really any different...

It doesn't much matter in your case what might happen, because if you want to stay in ESP or STU, the arms cannot be changed or the brackets added.

As for the upper arm. I do uppers all the time....
