tein SS and whiteline sway bars

hey all, I have an R33 sedan (s1) that I'm looking at fitting Tein super streets on and Whiteline front and rear sway bars (most likely 24mm adjustable front and rear) will also probably be going with the HD links. I was curious if anyone else has done the same or done similar mods and if there were any tips or anything else i might need to consider before sourcing and installing these. 

to avoid any confusion I'm after a comfortable yet rigid street/daily set up. 

any advice or input is welcome and appreciated, cheers

24mm adj front & rear will quite probably lead to the car being oversteer biased.  I have mine set hardest front, softest rear, with otherwise well matched springs, and it is definitely lively at the rear end.  24mm adj front and 22mm fixed rear would be a safer setup.  Not trying to dissuade you from going 24mm adj both ends....just warning you how it comes out in practice.

The bars are pretty firm, but not as "firm" as the typical 8&6 kg springs you get on Teins.  So you won't even really notice the influence of the bars on roll stiffness as much as I do.  My front springs are only in the 5.x kg range.

22mm definitely sounds like a better option for what I'm shooting for.

does this mean i should go with the bars to start off and give that a run then see how it performs and base my suspension selection on that?

thanks heaps

    • The boy crashed his Patrol a while ago, so he is now driving his mum's ASX and she is driving my Honda I initially said he could have the Honda to drive around (he's a good kid currently training at the police academy), but, his mum was quick in saying that he "will" take the ASX and she will take the Honda, he was a bit upset with that, he rates the manual Honda more than the automatic ASX (mums taxi), and I'm getting the feeling she enjoys thrashing the manual Honda around In other news, I'm looking at a MX5 NB series 2 on Saturday  I always loved my NB series 1, but after stripping it down because I'm a idiot it wasn't fun cruising or driving around daily, and Jackie refused to drive it, which was an issue if we went out, because her refusing to drive it meant I lost my designated driver if we went to a party, or dinner, or...... basically anywhere where I could get a glow on Yes yes, I may need a new job if I decide to buy https://www.seek.com.au/apprentice-hairdresser-jobs/in-All-Sydney-NSW Plus giving the Honda to the boy, which is my cunning plan, will give me enough wifey type credits to turn up in another car Meh
