Cobb stage 1 suspension package

Has anyone here bought this package? Is it really worth the $600.00? Or, Should i purchase them seperately?

Look into some other options. Cobb uses Hotchkis Sways and I think that you can get them way cheaper than $600. That is ridiculous. Also check with the actual price from a vendor. That may be just a MSRP and they can get it for cheaper. I love the Hotchkis sways that I run.

This looks about the same as what you can get from the Cobb Stage 1 minus the rear strut tower bar:

It is also priced $100 cheaper than the Cobb.

I have the Cobb sways, and I love them. Tight. I do not have the adjustable brackets. $195 for the rear tower brace seems a bit much. Cusco makes one for less which. And from what I have read, it works very well.

whiteline for the win dude.
this is my setup with prices for suspension:
as far as body roll goes:
whiteline rear adjustable sway bar(24mm):200
whiteline front adjustable 24mm sway bar: 200
whiteline front endlinks:109
whiteline rear endlinks:109
white line rear sway bar brackets:100
note: both front and rear sway bars came with new bushings, and the endlinks came with new bolts, as did the
the above totalled to around seven hundred
all of the above was ordered from Chris A www.scoobytuner.com
that is way better shit than Cobb in my opinion, they are solid bars, hotchkis is hollow, therefore cobb is hollow.
I also have tein h tech springs from scoobytuner:235
and STi pink struts, which I bargained into getting with my car from the dealer
all the above mixed with my rims and tyres, equals aWRX that migth as well be on rails when tracking through a corner, seriously, it is ####ing sick.

the last things that I will doing to my suspension is a new h frame brace, and all new control arms through whiteline,

so yeah, whiteline FTW!!!!!!

What is your reasoning on solid bars being so much better?
