Okay everyone, I would like to get some feed back.

1. Rims: I have a black 99 RS, with stock rims. I have seen different options posted here. Has anyone put the gun metal color rims on a black car? opinions?

I think they look great on the sedona red (which is not the color I have).

2. Rear sway bar: I was thinking this would be the next item to add. I see some people having problems with the front ones, any opinions about the rear?

Thanks

I just put on a Whiteline 20-24 rear bar with their drop links and the ALK. Awesome! It totally transformed the car. I can go 40 around corners now, with hardly any lean, and no tire squeel. (have 5zigen springs and AGX struts also)
It seems like the ALK wouldn't do much, but man, it really does.
I can't rave about these things enough.

If you are in So. Cal. you can drive it and see for yourself.

I like that idea. I wish I was in So. Cal. I figure I would learn from others.

with the stock suspension, i would recommend either the whiteline 18-22mm bar or the FHI 20mm (the same one used with our suspension in other countries). that gets rid of the understeer quite well. don't forget tires!

Tires are the first thing I have in line.

I like the idea of getting rid of the understeer. I think I will check pricing for the whiteline. Any recommended vendors? This is saving me research time.

Thank you everyone. :)
