    okay, so ive spoken with sheridan metal works. :http://www.sheridanmetal.com/en/

    I can make mine, a one-of, for about $200 ish or make 5 for about $600 ish
    so I will be running a group buy if anyone else wants brackets made.

    they will be made out of a single piece of 3/16th stainless steel and probably (maybe not) powder coated black.
    the metal will be laser cut and bent 135* or so, then back 135* then 90* so that it hugs the suspension.

    Ill load pics when i can I have a buynch of measurements i need to get for them...im so jdm, i work with "mm", but steel is in inches ..

    So there on.

    *** note: use the stock suspension cap or your strut will go through your hood***

    Temp. Fix... Zip ties on the sway bar till bracket is ready.

    Nice. Thanks for the update.

    How does it feel? I'm far from a suspension expert, but have read tht sometimes a spring upgrade means the stabilizer bars may not even be needed if they're stiff.

    Thanks! Its about time. I think i need to roll the front fenders abit.
    Or just learn to drive properly. ( grip used for braking cant be used for turning)
    As long as its not leaning forward and to the side there is no rub.
    These cars dont really like to brake and turn. So, I need to smarten up. Especially before winter.
    Which I must start collecting things for then. Tires, rims, and rally armour mud flaps.

    It a like long wave vs short wave. Now I have 2 small dips where I used to have 1 big bounce.
    Nose dives are reduced
    Camber increased, caster increased
    Roll reduced (without swabar)
    Its
    Proper.
