setting up for a new suspension set up

Hey guys im looking to spend around $5-600 on suspension parts, i'm planing on a DD/Weekend AutoX set-up

I already have:

-Tein Springs
-KYB AGX shocks
-Camber Kit

I want to get :

-Megan FU strut bar..don't think the RU will fit because of my 10" sub
-Megan lower tie bar
-Suspension Tech. F and R sways
-Energy Poly. Master bushing kit
-Brake pads? Hawk?


A few questions:

1.What do you guys think of these?
2.What would you recommend, if you disagree with any of them?
3.Are there FL and RL strut bars? Will they help?
4.Are under braces the same as tie bars?
5.What other parts should i add to the list?

Sorry for the long list of questions guys

Thanks for any/all help. Appreciate it.

If you auto-x make sure you can remove your Sub... don' want that to be flying around in you trunk.

Every thing looks good to me.

1.What do you guys think of these?
I've not heard of anybody having trouble with any of them mate.

2.What would you recommend, if you disagree with any of them?
I would probably replace the Tein springs with Eibachs or something, but that's just me.

3.Are there FL and RL strut bars? Will they help?
Don't bother with the lower strut bars, the money would better be spent on a good set of tyres

4.Are under braces the same as tie bars?
As far as I know yes they are. And again, don't bother with them, just spend the money on better tyres.

5.What other parts should i add to the list?
Tyres. Just remember that regardless of how good your suspension is, if you're running rubbish rubber bands then it ain't gonna make a scrap of difference.

well if u autoX u will have to take the subs out unless they are really bolted in. and even then im not sure how they are about it. but if u wanted to be competetive i would take them out anyways. they even make u take ur floor mats out.

ok so a guy that works at Megan said that the sh1t they make is crap and that you can bend the bar easily, so looks like im going to purchase a neuspeed FU for around 80...good deal?

How can you "easily" bend a steel bar? I've had the Megan front and rear bars for a while now with 0 bending lol. If you got the money though try to get a one piece bar. Hurry up and buy that Swaybar set!

Just keep in mind is you mix and match you'll end up paying more. I think I remember the Tanabe swaybar being the same size or smaller than the ST set.

Yeah Tanabe is pretty good for me aswell, i have the Pro-SOC coilovers and they're pretty good, they're not too hard, but just perfect for daily driving. They self adjust, and they're height adjustable. I'm looking into buying the Front Strut bar, and Rear Sway bar, and maybe the Underbrace. They're decently priced.
