which one do you guys think is better?
i also need to get new springs. i'm not sure between tien stech htech or something else. i've read other threads but never really seen a spring that won out over others.

I personaly don't like the idea of holow bars, I would go with Cusco F/R sway bars with Perrin end links

My turbo's fixed and a lot better =)

so you guys think the second link for the perrin stuff. that's the one i was planning on. if i got cusco stuff it would be about probably 60 or 70 more. is cusco better then perrin?

I used to think so but people here have posted so many good experiences with perrin, I'd have to give the edge to perrin

Honestly I think they are all the same, I just like Cusco by preference. Cusco also makes alot more suspension pieces for the Subie that I would love to have

Cusco seems to be a leader in suspension. But Perrin is so Subaru specific, that they're doing a very good job too. I say you can't go wrong with either. Both quality parts.

Alot of the nationally competitive STX WRX's are running the hotchkis bars. Take that for FWIW. I on the other than will be running a Strano front bar, and probably no bar or the stock bar in the rear . Experimentation.

i have the cobb swaybar kit. I would definitely recommend it, and spend the extra cash to get cobb links also.

ok so as soon as i finish saving another couple of hundred i'm going to get the perrin sway bars and end links. i still haven't decided between a couple of springs either the hotchkis or eibach springs.
http://www.jscspeed.com/wrx/suspension/springs.htm
the hotchkis come with new bump stops. i was also thinking about getting perrin springs but they drop lower and i don't want my struts to go out soon. any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
thanks guys
