ideas bussling in my head

welk with everyone changing the suspensions, and mine being shot and broken i need to ask alot of questions all at once

my k meber is bent, id need to replace it, everything on the front end must be upgrade then b/c id rather go throught the trouble once

so im thinkin, keeping my stock sport springs, kyb shocks, as sport ones dont exsist anymore, thats thinking on the budget side of things, upgrading my front bar with a 90 SC one (1.10") and geting solid engine mounts if i could afford those to, how do you think this would go?

my 2nd idea would be so go with diff springs, and shocks, and the same bar up front, but i would need suggestions, and ic ant go all out as im not to rich, and have bills that must be killed, but i could possible build all this up and do it in late summer fall or winter

so whats everyones opinion on KYB shocks?

They still make the sport shocks for the front. 2 Sports for the front and 2 LX's for the rear will cost you $180, which isn't too bad for some good shocks. Get bigger anti-roll bars, lower the car, and some STB's and you will be pullin off-ramps at 80mph... =P

i pull of ramps at 80 right now with big old honking 245/50 firehawk SZ-50 rear tires, i dont want to mix and match shocks to much, i know it would make sense, stiffer front dampners, that and the KYB's all around cost cheaper then the ford factory ones, but hey maybe sport front KYB rears, or kybs all around, o that and im def gonna run 245/50 16s all around, and get a bigger front bar once my trade goes through, but i really want to lower the car while all this stuffs riped apart, but ill see how money goes, this may end up as a fall project
