Suspension Is your ride slammed to the ground? Did you lift it so high you need a ladder to get in? Step in and talk about it here.

Default '92 240 Suspension

Just purchased the wagon, needs inner tie rods, figured while in there should do outer tie rods as well. SO now I ask, what else should I do while I'm down there? My immediate budget is $2k.

IPD Sway bars is a must
lowered springs I would think would be nice, maybe just a small 1.5"?
Would installing a front end strut brace help any that would be noticed while driving on the street?
Please educate me, this will be driven 4 or 5 times a week only by me, with Mod's done as the time goes by. All the normal stuff.
This is not my primary car, thats an S60.

The car has been taken care of but is an old car with old car problems. She has 250,000 on the odometer. I'm just as excited to work on her as I am to drive her around town!!!

kaplhenke 240 coilovers look pretty nice, if you send in the old cores you get $200 back so that lowers the price to $740 for all 4 corners. This with a milder sway bar like a 23/21mm turbo setup(one for sale for $175 currently) might be the ticket????

WHAT YOU GUYS THINK??? EDUCATE ME PLEASE!!!!!!!!

What you guys think of Jesjofors springs instead of IPD? Would the ride be softer? I've heard IPD can be pretty stiff and Lesjofors tends to be softer.
