Looking for Rear Sway bar suggestions, I've been wanting to do this for so long but reluctant because Ive heard all the nightmares people have had with rear end links/clunking/contact with other suspension parts when lowered. I was thinking the progress bar with Moog end links? I currently have the car on godspeed coilovers lowered about 2 inches. Here's my ride height for reference. If I have to raise the car to avoid end link issues this is gonna be a no-go lol

Thanks I appreciate it! Im about to hit a year of ownership and 20,000 miles (84,000 total). I've truly enjoyed every single moment of this journey. These cars are so underrated honestly. It's not fast but does everything else flawlessly

Ive not driven a manual 6, but my 3 is pretty fast. I say this having owned a 90 Talon awd turbo. Its as fast as the Talon was stock, easily. The 6 however feels large and not as nimble despite only 3-400 pounds difference.

The 3 Gt must be pretty fast, it it is comparable to 90 Talon Turbo. I had a 90 Eclipse Turbo, I drove the hell out that car for 200,000 miles! It was an oil burner from the beginning, Burned like a qt. of oil every 3000 miles. The manual shifter was crap, but with a couple of mods to the shifter made a little better, still felt ropey

They weigh about the same and the 3 has 184hp to the Talons 195 and 185tw vs 200. Honestly i think the 2.5l is underrated on power. And yea, i need to stiffen my shifter up a bit too.
