Need help with suspension mods...
1) is getting the TANABE SUSTEC LOWER TIE BAR (front and rear) same as getting a TRD Sway Bar set? is CUSCO LOWER ARM BAR same thing?

2) Which will help me out more? Whats more worth it?
TRD Rear strut bar, or Tanabe Sustec front strut bar?

1)as far as i kno, cusco makes the front tiebar, and tanabe makes the rear tiebar.

the tie bars increase the rigidity like the upper strut bars. performance gains w/ the tie bars will not be as noticable w/ new aftermarket sway bars.

sway bars will reduce the amount of roll when you make sharp turns. imo, get the TRD sway bars.

2)the front upper strut bar and rear strut bar both do the same thing, stiffen up the chassis to aid in cornering. most ppl get the front strut bar first, and then the rear. it doesn't really matter which one you get first
