It worth it if you can find a used set but they are very rare. But if you have the money for brand new bumpers well why not ;)? Will look very nice. Some body kits cost less than the oem SAP and can look very good too. Depends of your tastes ;)

I'll look into it more. Hopefully this weekend I can get some pictures of some of the things I've been doing.

Sap bumpers appears in the BST section every once in a while... Buying it from the dealer is not worth it imo unless you have expendable cash at your disposal. Although for $1000 I would either buy coilovers or a nice set of 17" wheels with tires.

nice build the ST is a great way to go I love mine. Also look into doing the balance shaft delete. Kit can be bought from CFM or Massive for around $20.

I plan on doing it, I'm just a little worried about the added noise. I probably will pick up some better Mounts and hopefully that will fix the problem.

Yeah, It's at the bottom end of my list for sure, This summer I'll pick up some rims and do coilovers. Found a nice Eibach set I'll probably be ordering soon.

I'm just a little worried about the adjusting portion of it.

I would recommend FSWerks for most of the parts you have listed. The BSD doesn't really make any noise or extra vibrations, and the mounts only vibrate when the a/c is on (that WAS all 3 poly-mounts as well)

Well, I think I'm gonna skip out on the coilovers for now and just go with something similar to this. I figure I could save some money to put into other parts.

Eibach kit is nice, but if you are doing it because it's cheap and you are gonna upgrade. Why even do it at all. Do it right the first time...

It's not so much that it's cheap, more that if I went with the pro kit instead of coilovers I could save a little bit of money for the wheels/camgears/tune.
But I don't like that the pro kit is only a 1-1/2" drop.
I'm totally torn right now.
