    Not sure where you're getting that # from, but that is WAY too high.

    Konis: $700-800
    Spec-R: $350
    Com-C mounts (F): $200
    OE mounts (R): $100-150 (Group-N: $250)

    The camber bolts and alignment aren't factored into this, as I would recommend them with stock setup...

    so the 700-800 is for all four corners... thought that all seemed high.

    Where do you primarily get your stuff from? Big thing for me is customer service if needed, and reliability I'll get the right stuff in a timely manner. I'm gonna shop around, do more research, find what I think will be best for me... but I have a better starting point then I did before.

    No prob man. Give them a call...they're customer service is legendary. They just like things done right, so if you need something specific and they can't provide it or their option isn't better, they will even refer you somewhere that can help. Unheard of.

    That's the customer service more companies need to invest in

    Why not go through TiC for everything?

    I am not a fan of Whiteline endlinks; I like the Kartboy versions:
    Kartboy WRX Sedan endlink combo - Suspension

    Sways:
    Sway bar - 24mm X heavy duty blade adjustable MOTORSPORT - Suspension
    Sway bar - 22mm heavy duty blade adjustable - Suspension

    Com-Cs:
    Camber/caster correction - strut mount offset assembly - Suspension

    They used to sell the Spec-R springs (I'm not seeing them on their site quick), so ask them about them, as well. If you pair everything together, you may be able to get them to give you a bit of a break. Not sure, but often times, vendors will give a bit of a discount on larger orders.

    I was combing through TIC and only saw the struts and top hats. Didnt see my springs, and at first the whiteline bars. I'll go through and add the bars from TIC though vs. RSD. The Com-C not being referred to as a "Com-C" on TIC threw me off there. I was going with the Whiteline end links because I've always had this little OCD thing almost about matching manfuacturer parts to manufacturer parts if I can. I've also heard some shifty things about Kartboy... and just as many good, so I was on the fence about Kartboy. When I get the money together I'll call and see if they still have the Spec-R springs. if not, I'll have to go through a seperate supplier, but not the end of the world. Didnt know about the possibility of discounts for large orders..then again I've never made 1k+ purchase at a given time from a single supplier. its always been when money permits for something. Thanks Matt!
