Question All around suspension!

So I know theres been plenty of suspension threads on here and I've looked through the majority of them and never really got the information I was looking for.

I'm looking to get quality Front and Rear Sway bars and a Front Strut tower that will clear my TurboXS Top Mount. I do know what Coilovers I'm going with though.

I've looked at Whiteline, ScoobyTuner, Xcceleration and Turbowholesale's websites and I can't really find the right parts or fitments I need to fit my 06 Baja Turbo. Or if I do I don't know what fitments would fit my car-truck(Baja). If anybody has part numbers, part names, vehicle fitments I can search for, suggestions of what they have and/or use and where it can be found would be lots of help!

We can make this into a good thread that could help other Baja owners figure out information about upgrading their suspension!

Thanks & Help please!

I have the whiteline sway bars and they are baja specific. I also have the megan one piece coil overs and I love the way she rides. Its like riding on rails.
There is a guy one here in pa thats selling the whiteline sway bars. I picked up the exhaust off him.

I paid $790 on ebay about 6 months ago. There is a guy on there that sells them with a best offer. I made the offer and he took it. Worth every penny

Anyone know of anything else other than Whiteline products? And does anyone know of any Strut bars that would fit the Baja? or Baja Turbo

Last edited by BajaSleeper; 12-15-2008 at 11:13 PM. Reason: changed sway to strut.

- curious what you did not like about Whiteline. I have a low-mileage 06 Baja Turbo and want better rear shocks (struts), sway bar & end links before determining if & what to do to the front... thx.

- wondering what you did for rear & front shocks / struts, sway bars, end links etc. Need to go there too... thx. - SUBSEQUENT TO THIS POST, I BOUGHT & INSTALLED A REAR WHITELINE SWAYBAR THAT I FOUND LOCALLY. It made a good difference. Now still looking for REAR SHOCKS TO STOP THE BOUNCING BACK THERE. Would really appreciate suggestion for a reasonable cost alternative to firm up the rear end a little. Thanks!
