I'm looking to upgrade my endlinks with solid endlinks and maybe getting a new rear sway bar along with some new top hats, but I am not sure if I should go with the STI group N top hat or the Cusco top hat and I was wondering if with either of these options I can use the stock springs until I get enough bank for either some STI springs or some Cobb springs.

*edit: I have already installed a set of KYB AGX struts, also if any one has any other recommendations for top hats let me know.

Thanks in advance

No sense upgrading your tops w/ oe springs IMO, you have to disassemble your struts/springs/tops and that requires another alignment

when you upgrade your springs I'd definitely consider upgrading your tops to Grp N ones- they are a much firmer durometer rubber over oe, but are still rubber so it cuts down NVH over metal tops

the only time I'd not recommend Grp N tops is if you need more camber (talking up front) then it's camber plate time, then I'd still recommend them for the rear

if I had a sedan the choice for a spirited daily driver would be takeoff STi springs (04-07) the spring rates (223/194) would go well w/ the damping of the AGX's, lowering is moderate ~ 10-12mm and the price is right- in the $75ish range used. simply purchase the 04 style rear top and use a TIC spacer (as the AGX's are a 02/03 style strut) and your done
