Question svt suspension kit

I was wondering how good that SVT suspension kit was that is listed on mcnews for $245???

My daily driver ZX5 is in need of some mods and I would really like to improve the handling around corners and over all ride. I dont have a large budget becuase im finishing up college so this seems to be a pretty good price for shocks and coils and it appears to come with a sway bar.

Along with this suspension upgrade I plan on getting the SCT superchip, I think with the two combined I should have a pretty good daily driver.

Any opinions would be appreciated.

Thanks!!

On a limited budget I believe the SVT suspension is a good alternative and at $245 is a good buy. I would say go for it.

What kind of mods would go good with the chip on an automatic transmission?

So how much fun will this kit be to put on? I imagine the rear will be a peice of cake, and the front shouldnt be too bad, but how about that sway bar? Is it for the front or the back?

If I am not mistaken I believe the sway bar is for the rear, might double check me on that.
The rear sway bar is no prob to install, the front one on the other hand is a major PITA.

Could also look into a UDP

Thanks
