stupid suspension question

Ok, im really stupid as suspension stuff but this is just a general question:

Im a spirited twisty driver (but im more of a straight line guy) and i cant justify spending the extra money for the koni's. Every now and then I'll take some turns fast, but i really dont do it too often. Is it really worth payin the extra money for something i may not use that much? I'm sure id be happy w/ both, but im just unsure about what to get.
Thanks

I may be wrong since I'm no expert, the sway bar would have more to do with dampening body roll on turns than a shock would. Shocks help but that's not what its job is.

If you don't autocross, or have plans to in the near future, then you don't really need the Konis.

sorry about the late reply, i somehow got logged out so i never got an email..

yeah i dont autocross really at all, I just want to be able to take some turns slightly faster. Another reason i really dont want them is w/ the tires i have now will make any super positive effects of the springs worthless. Alright Thanks for your help

Zack

edit: oh and are the rubber mounts required for the front? Tirerack sells them and I'm unsure
