Default Deciding on suspension list

Over the next two weeks, if the price is right, I am looking at getting the SSEi suspension for my SE. Looking around, I can probably get the Stabilizer bars both for under 90$. But what else do I need with this to work on my car? I am thinking...

-Of course both stabilizer bars
-Bushings from original car

Would I need endlink kits or something? And what are and do I need mid-bar brackets?

My main goal is to get everything off the donor car if possible, and not purchase anything from a store at all.

you will want to get the Energy suspension and endlink kit for your car. Most likely you will find a FE2 suspension, but if you find a F41

what yards are u looking at in PA?

Front:
Sway bar
Mid mounts
Just grab the strut assemblies complete to get the springs. Saves time.

Rear:
Swar bar
Mid mounts
Springs
Upper Isolators
Lower Isolators

With those parts you can build FE2 or F41 into your car.

Thanks Dame, thats exactly what I needed, was a list.

Dont know of any yards, but going to try Route 19 Salvage Yard first, then if they are too expensive I found some online that were pretty cheap.
