    Welcome to the forum.Congratulations.

    There are several options for swaybars & endlinks.

    I have Whiteline 24mm adjustable front swaybar & a 22mm adjustable rear sway bar with Kartboy endlinks.

    Bushings are a great & cheap way to make upgrades to your car.

    You will most certainly need to change shifter bushings.Steering rack bushings are also commonly done.As well as rear subframe bushings.
