    Sway bars or end links first?

    I have a little money i'd like to put into helping some of the roll on the car. I know that both would be ideal, but I just can't afford it right now. Which would be better to start off with? I will replace the other later, just can't do it right now.

    Sway bars,....just make sure you don't get too thick of ones because you run the risk of breaking the stock end links. 24f,22r

    You could always go front sway bar/endlinks first and then do the back later!

    If it were me, I'd just set the money aside until you have time to do it all at once. If you must I suppose you could reuse the stock endlinks with aftermarket sways.. aftermarket endlinks on stock sways would hardly make a difference in performance.

    I'm pretty sure you can get whiteline sways and kartboys links for less than 650. also, if you know you will have trouble saving the money, you could just just buy one now and not install it until you can afford to buy the other. then install both at the same time

    Get the sway bars, worry about the endlinks when you have some extra $ later.

    if u want it now and can find a better deal with different pieces like whiteline/perrin sways, kartboy endlinks instead of a full kit, id go that route and order sway and endlinks together and do the front first and you''' notice a difference. will give u time to save for the rear and spread out the install so you can be happy and have better handling and not feel rushed to install the rear when the front gives you problems. (i didnt feel a huge difference in rear sway/endlinks and stout mounts even after driving without the rear sway for a few days) i know how it is lol. get new parts, must install in one day or get upset lol. but goodluck with wherever u go.

    It says for most items. Does it apply to the kit?

    It will already take it off in the original price...Try this code "WR10BR" in the promotion code for some extra savings.

    Also, i just checked and it does apply for the kit. They say "most items" because they sell things that are not Perrin brand, and they usually only offer the sales (and promotions) on Perrin brands. With the sale and the promotion code I just provided the sway kit would be about $550 before taxes/shipping.
