I have the stock front swaybar on the front right now. The last time I ran in an autox event was a little over a month ago, and all I had was Steeda sport springs, koni's, strut tower brace, and c.c. plates. Since then the car has been in and out of the shop with mods as my budget will allow. Now the car has the 5-link with the adjustable rear swaybar (which I haven't figured out the right setup for it yet), I just ordered the front swaybar, aluminum rear lower control arms, full length subframe connectors, ball joints, bumpsteer kit and some cobra brakes with brembo rotors all around. So the car is not done yet, and won't be done for at least another 3 weeks, or whenever the stuff arrives. I do most of the work myself with my brother, except for welding. After all that stuff goes in I plan on tackling the wheels and tires.
I did a little more reasearch on the tires and you're right rfloz, I don't want to realy spend that much money on tires. So it'll be some 17 x 9 wheel, as soon as I make up my mind on which ones to buy.
