Negative to the chassis bracing if you want a street car. You don't want mega stiff. Having been there and done that, the power braces would be the last thing on the list to do.

I would have done sways before the strut braces. So yes do them next.

I've got the cusco f&r in my evo, and it is perfect for a street car imo. Also the cusco units come with bushes that don't need lubrication or create the knocking noises of the Whiteline ones. Small added bonus.

Re the adjustable's, the Cusco GC/GD ones are adjustable. With the new chassis for the GR/GH/GV a lot of companies are not bothering with adjustable rears. Some are copy and pasting GD styles to the new chassis, but that isn't necessarily the best. As with all suspension changes, it will depend on what you do and how your drive. Always best to speak to someone like John @ WW if you are unsure. I will always recommend the Cusco ones though as I have personally found them to be the best.

Being adjustable would give you options to tune the suspension to suit your parking style.

Thanks John. I've got a great price from Dan at CarMods on the rear bar with links. I'll get him to price me the front too and I'll order them ASAP. Was thinking the h brace as a minimum next. See what you mean about too much bracing on a street car. Thanks

Kym let us know how much the sway links are, i broke a factory one so might look at upgrading.

I have ZeroSports coilovers and Whiteline F & R sway bars - would I see much gain from any of the below? (on the street, not track)

Whiteline Anti-lift kit
Whiteline Roll Centre kit
Whiteline Heavy Duty polyurethane sway bar mounts
Swaybar Lateral lock kit

Anything not listed that you guys recommend for handling? I need to get a decent alignment done too but was going to wait until I have installed any extra parts first.

roll centre kit - yes, so much less understeer!
antilift kit - not too sure what it improves apart from keeping the car low at all time, without jumping up on launches/fast accelleration.

Coilovers should have fixed that and bobble-head. Most wouldn't be able to tell difference between the effect of the anti-lift or roll centre.

Any lateral strengthening of the front suspension is effective. As such, flexible strut brace and lower arm bar work in mine with limited effect on NVH.
