    shopping list for lowering

    Hey guys, I'll be lowering my car in a month using the strano bilstein combo. I've gotten a panhard bar to help center the rear, ive got sfc's but what else will I NEED? I've heard lca's, and relocation brackets from some, nothing else from others. So im here to find out once and for all. I'll also be getting sway bars at the same time too. now do i get adjustable stuff or non? ive got an adj phb.

    On car adj. phb & relo brackets you will need.

    LCA's would be optional but a good idea. Far as adj. one's depends on mods or furture mods. If you have or plan to run a larger 315 tire and/or an after market rear diff I would recommend adj. UMI LCA's with roto-joints either way.

    What sways you goin with?

    im not gonna go bigger tires, or track use. I was gonna go with the ones from ws6 store suspension techniques. the 35/25 kit with the bushings.

    Then non adj lca's will be fine.
    That is a big rear bar at 25mm, most are 22mm.

    I'm having my suspension done at the end of this month. Since I already have an adjustable phb and relocation brackets (because I have a 12 bolt rear) I needed to buy shocks, springs, and front strut mounts. If you don't have a strut tower brace you might want to invest in one of those, too.
