My 99, 95 has about 88K miles on it and it's time for some investment. I replaced the brake pads a short while ago but now it's time for rotors. While I'm at it I want to replace the dampers, struts, springs and anti-roll bars.

Here's my questions:

1. Most spring kits lower the car by about 1.5" (eibachs) - do I need the adjusting links or does the stock suspension allow enough adjustment to correct the camber?

2. Any trouble with stock wheel/tire sizes rubbing after lowering?

3. I can't find anti-roll bars - are they called something different or can you point me to a place that has them? I'd like to do front and rear -

4. What size diameter anti-roll bars are optimal for fronts and rears (my 64 Corvette has 1 1/4" up front and 7/8" in the rear....)

Thanks!

1) I'm running the Eibach kit and no adjustment has been neccessary.
2) I've gone from the factory 16" wheels to aftermarket 17" wheels with Aero spec tyres 225/45-17, no rubbing at all.
3)& 4) These are the only aftermarket ARB's i could find, other than that you could get some off a broken Aero model (the Aero had thicker ARB's than standard cars). http://www.genuinesaab.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=47_51&products_id=47&osCsid=e646b9bfeea66642df2d7fdf24429604
Thanks Kermit (again and again...) That's just what I was lookin for. Looks like I'm going to put about $1400 bucks into the ol 95. Not bad considering it includes: rotors, pads, ARBs, tires, struts and springs...

Of course, I'll be doing the work myself. Death to the Dealer!!!!
