I see SCP has the Vogtlands and Addcos on special at the moment. My 89 has just under 75 k on it now. The only upgrade has been a ripper shifter and good tires. I think I'm going to pull the trigger on a set of the 1.5 springs but was wondering what your opinions are on the sway bar. 1 1/8, 1 1/4 or just go with the springs. I'm just considering a rear bar and the car still handles great of course. Just wondering if the bar is overkill or redundant with the springs.
Let me know what you got and how you like it.

Cheers Tom

My '90 Anny was already lowered 1 1/2", & had the 1 1/8" rear bar when I got it in 2008. I had to refresh the end links/bushings, and then later I installed the red poly sway bar Energy Suspension bushings. I think it's a great combo. Front sway bar is stock, but I put poly bushings up there as well.

Thanks for the replies guys.
KMT, the 1 1/8 was the one I thought might be best for my application, good to know it works well for you.

Paul, thanks for the heads up. I will pm Al about it.

Anyone else?

Cheers Tom

Hi Luke, I haven't heard anything back from Steve yet on the Vogtlands, if I don't hear anything in the next day or two I'm interested in the ST springs. Also interested in the clear corners you mentioned in your post.

Hi guys, I will be ordering springs from SCP this afternoon as I have not heard back from anyone. I prefer new with warranty anyway.
Cheers Tom
