I understand the basic concept behind both sway bars and springs, both are beneficial, but I cant afford to do both at the same time, and I have no idea what size sway bars to get, nor brand. I read the sway bar sticky, but still struggling to justify what will yield a happy me in the end. Springs, they're simple. lower it a whisker, lowers my center of gravity, theoretically increase my cornering response and speed. Plus the perk of my 2004 not looking like a "mutt" as one of my buddies called it cause it sits so high. In any event, I'm not looking for manufacturer recommendations, ultimately I'll getting BOTH springs and sway bars. Right now I'm leaning to the springs simply because they will get me the slightly more aggressive WRX "look", with the small handling increase, but what is the wiser decision? I'm new to the suspension world. Dont know much, and I dont want to be jumping into something and not be happy up front with my purchase. I'm not looking for definite answers about what to do first either, but simply fishing for opinions from others so I have a better idea about what and why I would enjoy one over the other first.
