I'm interested in the responses you get to this, as suspension mods are in my near future as well.

I have the BMR strut tower brace. Its an easy install and doesn't negatively affect the ride. The stock unit was almost useless.

Check this out from down under by a company called Suspension Technology Australia: http://suspensiontechnology.com.au/products2.html They're who I was referred to by the guys at Harrop. John Will's is the fellow in charge and great to work.
I'd hate to see the price on those if they are like anything else that has to come from there.

Did you see ...... http://www.noltecsuspension.com/product/search.php?selBrand=52&product_vhcid=586

On what do you base this? The function of the brace is to keep the towers frm spreading.

I think over all you would see more gain frm the spring/strut combo. In a strictly street use, I prefer just the struts. If you want more, than add the springs.

I'm frm the school of thinking that prefers heavier springs over thicker sway bars. The thinking is that we want independent movement of each wheel. By tieing them together with bigger sway bars, we lose some of that independence. But i would replace the bushings to a urethane and the endlinks.

Yes, I'm curious too. What the difference between one or another besides an improvement in the structural rigidity?

Dcgoat where did you find that price for the koni yellows/ B+G springs? That seems like a pretty good deal to me, koni's are awesome.
