    1LE Front and Rear Sway Bars W/Stock springs/shocks?

    How will this perform? I have a 98 Z28. Do you need to do the shocks and springs at the same time (hope answer is no)? How harsh is the ride with the 1LE sway bars and stock springs/shocks? Finally, where can I buy them? I don't want the 35 mm etc. I'm worried the 1LE may be too harsh for my ageing back! But I really want better handling.

    Thanks,

    Jim

    you do not have to do the shocks and springs at the same time. they won't make the overall ride any more harsh. the stiffer springs and shocks would make the ride more harsh. what you'll notice with larger sway bars, is less body roll going through corners. a quicker response to steering wheel input.

    Do you have an recommendations on where to buy the parts? One reason I want to do this now is my end links have the bottom bushing very brittle and crumbly looking. I need to replace that on both sides so this is a good time to make this upgrade. Is there a whole 1LE package from a vendor? I may consider the whole deal if it's not too expensive.

    Thanks,

    Jim

    end-links are cheap... get an extra set when purchasing the swaybars... and the springs/shocks are totally independant of the swaybars, and can be done at any other time... so the answer is no, as you were hoping.
