Well I'm saying is it recommended? Have any of you pair this kit with a rear swaybar? How's the handling?

I'd pass on the fancy endlinks if only going with the fRPP suspension, would be more of a benefit if going lower than 1.5" (unless yours currently are blown.)

The adjustable control arms are also nice but you could probably will be just fine going with a set of $25 camber bolts. Again, going lower than that and they would really help you get the camber right. I didnt need them when I had the FRPP on my '07 but really needed adjustable arms after lowering more than 1.5". If you do eventually plan on going lower at some point, the massive arms would make you future proof. My logic says, $25 camber bolts vs $200 camber arms..ill try the bolts first

I had my FRPP paired with a 21mm front and 22mm rear bar, great combination. I can never remember what size the different models of 2nd gens came with but 21/21 or close to that is a nice fit (svt came stock 21f/21r)

Hey! Where are you buying the kit? I was looking for the zx3b mentioned here, the zxm1 is what keep showing up- which spring are you going with? I can't seem to make heads or tails of zxm1- if they bolt up with the frpp 18000zx3b shocks and if so- what the difference is. Some people say they are only stiffer, others say they aren't meant for a daily driven car... Still someone else seems to think they are a newer version of the zx3b. Some say i need extra parts for the zxm1- other says no. The only definet info I can find is that the zx3b is the best option, they've been discontinued but are still available some places. Where? I'm worried if I order the strut/shock kit and the spring kit- the strut kit will ship without the springs then.. What. Really new to the lowering world! :)

Sorry for the double post but does anyone think that the 10mm front spacers I have on my front wheels will give me any trouble rubbing with this kit?
