What to buy...something?

Ok so i got between 350 to 400 dollars to spend on my svt and i want it to go towards suspension. ive been working on getting the power up there and it seems to be pretty adequate. im iffy on getting springs being that i want to just by the h and r cup kit all at once and im still on stock shocks and struts, soo... any suggestions guys???

Swaybars would be the best , maybe coupled with some rear adjustable shocks for now.

meh..go with the tune dude...it's right in your price range and the power gains will be markably better than the handling gains from a cheap suspension kit.

suspension = hp for the corners , get the suspension sorted out , if you have ever autocrossed before you would know we have enough HP.

There is no such thing as enough hp or torque.. lol.. but he's already plannign on getting the cup kit.. so depending on how aggressive you want the handling to be you could get the H&R front and the Steeda rear... that would definitely make your car a lot firmer.. and you'd probably get a little tail action going on...

haha forever sellin that tune. i already got your tune tom its all good. but i was lookin more into swaybars maybe shocks. the steeda monster 28.6mm rear swaybar is only 99 bucks i was thinking about pairing that up with a H&R 24mm front sway bar im not sure if that 28.6 is too aggressive though its so tempting for the price. i just wanted to run the info through hear though being that i respect the information i get here.

as for power the only thing i have left now until going FI is a 3inch cat-back this has also found its way into the mix via a couple friends and of course toms promotion of 3inch on NA.

so im still bent on what to do. the 3 inch would top off my bolt-ons, but the swaybars would garuntee amazing handling plus fit well with future suspension mods. all this and the money is still burning a hole in my pocket.
