I'm planing on doing a complete suspension job this weekend. Koni adjustables, eibach 1 1/2 lowering springs, front and rear bushing kits, addco 1 1/8 rear swaybar, and new upper control arms. I have never done a suspension job before so i was wondering about any do's dont's and watch out for's. I checked out the mn12performance page but am looking for more tips. If any of you guys could help it would be greatly appreciated.

make sure you shorten the length of your endlinks on your swaybars by the amount you are lowering it with the springs, or it will handle like crap.
because the sway bars will be doing the job the springs should be doing.
i did mine and changed the rears endlinks and had to wait for new front end links and boy did it handle like crap until i changed out the fronts , then it handled great till the 21st of oct when a a$$ uturned in front of me and totaled it out.

i got the rears from www.suspension.com
i droped it 1.25" and the part #'s for the rears were
1 of 9-5164-G &
1 of 9X117-G
the fronts i got some other endlinks and cut them down the 1.25''.
i cut them in the middle and threaded both ends and used a coupler with a locknut on each side of that.
