    So the torque arm will work better than the panhard bar?
    Is it true that when u add all this to the car it makes some kind of noyses on the car?

    An adjustable panhard is going to help you to re-center your rearend, it won't give you any performance gains. A torque arm will net you some performance gains.

    As I stated previously, the torque arm with the cross member relocates the front mounting of the torque arm off the tailshaft of the transmission.

    Get the TA with the cross member.

    Also, with a tunnel mount torque arm, you probably will pick up a little more road noise. It's nothing to be too concerned about. Most of us experience it.

    The noise comes from it being a tight fit and vibrations being sent into the chassis from the torque arm. I rarely notice mine, if at all. My car is a bit loud though as I have Kooks LTs with the LMII exhaust and no cats.

    My car is kinda loud too so I dnt think I'm gonna hear it to much
    but the vibrations are normal then.
    And what's the deal with the sway bars? Are they a good upgrade to me they look the same

    A swaybar increases your cars roll stifness. It mainly helps in turns or coming straight off the line in a hard launch at the track.

    I don't think you need an upgraded one personally with your current mods.

    If you do get one, you need to get the front and back together. Strano sells hollow ones that are both lighter and stronger.

    Some people remove the front one during drag racing to help with weight transfer. This isn't recommended though for driving on the street..only straight line performance.

    jack stands and a jack is all you need. Each component comes with installation instructions. SFC's will need to be welded, unless you are buying bolt-on.

    I personnaly got weld-in. Don't ever plan on removing them and never have to worry about them coming loose. You can always get bolt_in and weld them later.

    One more thing that I didn't see anybody post was that with SFCs you will need to have the rear wheels under a load.you can accomplish this a couple of ways.

    Have vehicle on 4 jack stands and use a floor jack to lift the tire or use ramps on rear and floor jacks up front. Either way is fine, just make sure you have the rear under a load or you'll have a hell of a time putting the SFCs on.
