    I'd say that was a cheap and significant change.

    I'm glad I did it. Little to no roll even when the crappy stock shocks/springs. I'll have to do the rears next.

    I used some poly bushings.

    I believe they were Energy ones. I bought them a year ago, decided to put them in Sunday cuz I found them a few weeks ago. Bought some more for the rear last night for $31 bucks.

    I noticed a big diff too. I also did struts/shocks, tie rod ends and upper/lower ball joints at the same time, though. Everything I took out of the car was SHO-T. You could twirl the lower ball joints with your finger.

    I just replaced the sway bars on my car with the Strano hollows. When I was under there, I noticed that all my bushings are pretty much shot. So, as money allows, I'll be replacing the bushings (and hopefully upgrading components such as shocks/springs etc). Just the sway bars made a very nice difference, though.
