1" (25mm) Front and 7/8" (22mm) Sway Bar with mounting kit & instructions. Even with the taller tires on the base models the car feels flat and predictable in cornering. Body lean is substantially reduced for a remarkable ride. (9-5 Factory bar dia: 19mm front & 16mm rear. Aero = 20mm/17mm)

the specs seem pretty decent over the stock aeros

Suggestions?

anyone on this ?

Tweek runs them on his wagon. I will be buying them in the spring.
Does Eibach make springs for the wagon?

I love my B&G springs.
I think the H&R are a bit lower, but I don't know if they'll work on a wagon (heavier ass)

SAS kit has been on my wish list for years, but the $400+ price tag keeps me from pulling the trigger.


just kidding.. 30mm is 1.1"...B&G are 1.6"

I would think that you would see at least the same level of improvement that you get with the 9k's probably more since the 95's have irs in the back. Sasab doesnt make them but maybe think about poly spring spacers for the back to keep it from sagging

if you want to avoid sagging, dont carry so much junk in your trunk 24/7

Good to know B&G's are available for the 9-5, i love the b&g's on my 9000. I don't know if i want to lower my car however. I dont want it to rub with the 18's i will be running in the summer.

The SAS kit iss very pricey. It's something i will be looking to do after i fix my exhaust studs and a few other things.

#'s man keep the junk out of your trunk you heard mikey, haha. the spacers are a good idea if i do lower it they are a must have.
