Car is my DD and I am looking to tighten up the car some. I don’t Auto-x or go nuts in the turns. Do I go with the stage 1 springs and sway bar kit or Stage 2 coilovers? I am kind of reluctant to go with springs if they are going to blow my struts out or really reduce the life of them. I know I can go with another manufacturer for the rear sway bar and then pick up a front sway bar from mopar ( don’t remember if the front was an ACR or pt cruiser part). Anyhow some advice would be great.

I would definately reccomend the coilovers if you have the money. They are definately the way to go. You won't be sad that you spent the little extra dough to get the ride feeling better. The sway bars are a very nice way to reduce body roll without sacraficing the ride quality. We have had alot of experience w/ the perrin sway bar kit.

That thread explains the perrin rear sway bar a little bit better.

Depends on how much money you have to spend.

Mopar Springs and Sway bars $350

Mopar Coilovers $1150

Pretty big difference.

Coilovers and sway bars do different things both will greatly help you performance. Sway bars transfer load from one side on the other. So if you are taking a turn you car will have less body roll and greater tire patch and improved cornering capabilities.

Coilovers are per wheel the will give your tires a greater contact patch handle bumps better and oscillate a lot less.

Both of these items will be a great improvement over stock. All you have to decide is what you need for your driving style and what you want out of the car. If money in no object do coil overs and a sway bar. If money is tight do a sway bar and if you need to lower stance a set of springs. It all equates out to cost verse necessity. If you have any more question feel free to give me a call or hit me up on aim.
