thanks for tip, front strut is being shipping right now, saving up for tein ss coilovers and the rest of the stuff, ill get the sway first like you said and if im still not happy ill just get the rest, just dont want to spend money when i dont have to
I like my front sway bar. I tried the whole rear bar only and I got some nice balance of the car.....but it still didn't handle well. I threw a front sway bar on (neuspeed 30mm bar) and the car handles WAY better and is WAY faster through a course, but I increased understeer.
I made the balance worse....but still increased the speed/time through the course which is most people's goals.
I just bought a Progress 27MM rear sway bar with adjustable endlinks and will install it soon to get better balance.
I suggest buying a front and rear strut bar, front and rear sway bar with adjustable rear, and play with dampening settings on the shocks to factor out the big front sway bar.
if you need what products I used...I can list them.
the tie bars are important, and help you stiffen the car considerably.
if you were to do the same with lower tie bars, you'd be nice and stiff.
sway bars don't control stiffness of the car, they control the roll.
removing the front will give you a "feel" of a more balanced car, but in reality, you're only taking away from the car's handling limits.
putting a rear bar (larger) on will do the same as removing the front, but instead of lowering the limits, it will raise the limits of the car's handling.
it'll feel the same in both instances, but the actual limit is higher when you upgrade instead of remove a bar.
