OK MORE PICS Very Happy
I haven’t got them of the parts fitted to the car but after fitting the new sway bar I found that my front suspension is creaking as I go round corners so I had a look and all the bushes they looked a bit worn so its time for some new bushes and I think ill use nolathane bushes so that the front handles like the rear and this will stop most of the body roll in the front. these are for the non super strut
front bushes

rear bushes

all the bushes

ok all up these cost me $300nzd and im going to have a go at fitting them this weekend so ill have to tell you how it goes

ok tmie for the rear swaybar as i said it was bent so i got a new white line one dam cheep
this is a pic of the new sway bar 18mm and the old bent 12mm one if you look at the right hand drip link (sway bar link) you can see that it is sat up of the ground
and i thought it mite be a good idea to fit new drop links

shot of the sway bar in

shot of the car after all the work


i still have a lot to work on like the twin pot brakes and a sports exhaust that can go silent at the switch of a button and a mod to make the mirrors close when you lock the car (like the new cars do but i will keep you all up dated as i work on the car

Definitely get coilovers, they are worth the money in performance, longevity, adjustability, and ease of installation!
