WK suspension upgrade recommendations?

Well my stock 06 WK (non SRT8) is in need of a suspension upgrade, perhaps shocks/springs/sway bars/? links. No lift.

Any current favorites? Bilsteins? SRT8 sways?

Everyone is having good luck with the bilsteins, I picked the Rancho RSX's. They've been great so far!

If I get SRT8 Sways I should get BWOODY SRT8 sway links?

No, you don't really need them.. You can reuse your own links with SRT8 sways. I did.

srt8 sway links will not work on WK. you need an extra p[art that is about 80 per side. get the WK sway links.

Re: WK suspension upgrade recommendations?

i would do it in steps until your goal is reached.

start with the shocks (Bilsteins) -

then go from there.

Re: WK suspension upgrade recommendations?

So that means I may have to keep taking the suspension apart, along with extra alignments?

sway and sway links do not affect the alignment. only the shocks will.

and you can add the sways and links without ever touching the shocks.

Re: WK suspension upgrade recommendations?

Sounds good. I'll order some bilsteins and see how it feels. As long as I don't have to do the springs, changing out sways and links in the future would be pretty easy.
