Having a Little Trouble Understanding...
So, basically, I'm looking to upgrade my suspension, as another fun, relatively cheap project. I've been reading the FAQs here, but they seem to be written for people who already know the whole part of a suspension. What I'm wondering is, when upgrading a suspension, what are the main components? I know what the struts and shocks are, but I see people talking about front and rear sway bars as well. What exactly are those, and how hard are they to replace? Are they neccesary to change?
I'm not looking to totally drop my car, either. I just want better handling and a slightly different stance than every other cobalt I see on the road.
tl;dr: noob asking 'Effing suspensions, how do they work?'
