Honestly not sure how much help the rear bar is as I did springs and rear sway at the same time but if you have a hatch it kinda kills the usefulness of the trunk but

If you like where mines sitting I would recomend the Steeda springs. Coilovers add cost without much benefit for a daily unless you want to go low in my opinion.

yea i have a sedan, so it wouldn't really affect my trunk space but if there no real benefit then it not necessary to get lol and the coilovers, aside from not being that comfortable for a daily but it would help the car with turns at least to make it fun around corner? lol.

Yes coilovers will help handling but so will the springs I mentioned just at a lower cost. Coilovers give you adjustable ride height over just springs but at a higher cost was my point. I'm not tring to stop you just throwing in my two cents, I throw money at all kinds of stuff because I want to.

And I'm sure the bar does help some just not sure how much as did the whole rear of my car at once. It will reduce some flex in hard corners
