It will also handle and perform better, so the right way means replacing shocks/struts at the same time

You do not need to add a rear sway bar but if you do not have one, then adding that will be beneficial to your overall handling. I suggest a 21-22mm rear bar and poly bushings/endlink bushings. If you do not have the mounting for one, Steeda makes a kit that allows you to attach one.



I also went ahead and moved this thread to the suspension section.
Thank you for your help and for moving this to the correct section. I will check out that steeda kit.
