ok guys I'm upgrading my brakes and suspension below is the list of items I'm going to be using to do it. I have a questions about one thing. first let me say that the car will be a weekend joy ride no racing not track nothing crazy just a joy ride. so I want it to handle like a up to date car.
THE QUESTION.
Well I was wondering how important the sway bars are, or if I need them at all. second thing if I do need them could I just put one on the front and not the rear. the complete set runs 531.00, just the front sway bar will cost 195.00 that's a 330.00 savings which I could really use to get my gauges worked on or replaced so the money would defiantly be put on that.

The set http://store.summitracing.com/partd...907681+4294925081+4294923769+115&autoview=sku

The front http://store.summitracing.com/partd...SS-2207F&N=700+400083+303991+115&autoview=sku

ok well any help or advice would be great, you guys helped me out a great deal finding what I need to do all the upgrades so thanks. I'm not a very experienced person when it comes to the mechanics of the car like you guys are I have just the basic knowledge of it.

wow never thought to look on ebay for that stuff also those addco sway bars is this a good brand like I said you guys have walked me threw this so far so is this a good brand if so I can get the compete set for just 100.00 which I can surely afford it then. and you say you can really tell the difference man I cant wait.
also on the www.classicperform.comsite for brakes I would know which one I need is it cheaper then summit and will the kit have everything I need like the one from summit the booster and all of that stuff to do the conversion. if its cheaper and just as good of brand then hell ill get that as well.

Dont ask for Danny ask for Jeff. Danny is an engineer and does not take orders, and Jeff is the sales guy. CPP carries Addco sway bars (they dont make their own as far as I know).
