great idea on the feedback. i love this site for that reason. and since the TTR is probably the most durable, ill probably just shoot for that one. thxAs far as strength TTR is the best out there and thats what I bought, you can buy the whole system from eibach tho and save a little money going that way if you want all one brand but im gonna mix it up and try and get as much feedback on the best setup out there.
so the strut bars basically take up space or what? ive read somewhere that the firewall does the same thing as a strut bar. so is the purchase of a strut bar even justified?I want to focus on handling before I get more into performance...that's just me. For the OP, I recommend getting a rear sway first, then front sway if you really want to tackle that job...otherwise you can get a strut bar, but they are pretty much just for show. It's the same as working on a VQ35DE...if you know much about those engines, you'll know that buying an intake, header, or a few other things really are pointless. You can buy them to say you have them, but they don't make much if any difference. Same with a strut bar on a Cobalt.
I want to get my rear sway bar, shocks/struts, new brake pads/rotors/ss lines. Aftermarket wheels will be the last part of the handling.
Eventually, when all that is said and done, then I'll get my header/dp. By that time I'll have decided if I want to go S/C or not. I have to decide whether I want to go SC so I can decide which header/dp to buy. I'll be getting ZZP mid-length, but that will determine the primaries and what not.
I'm saving for a sporty car (wanted to get a Sky RL/Solstice GXP), but my wife says I need something with a rear seat for the car seat. So I'm looking at Infinity G35/G37, 05-06 GTO, 03-04 Mustang Mach 1...maybe something else, but those are my focus right now...may wait a while longer and just get a new Camaro SS if I can afford a used one in a few years. I'm not looking to spend more than $20k on one.
