You can get the bars from the wrecker... If you really want to cheap out get the Center links for both bars... Make sure you get the 32mm front and 22mm rear bars... If you find an F41 92+ you should be able yo use those springs as well... But that depends on what you already have as well..

It should be mentioned that rogers symptoms are classic strut only symptoms. There is no need to spend any more than quality struts and possibly the strut mounts including an alignment. While this is a great post about swapping suspension and stiffening the ride, in rogers case......it'* total overkill.

Do those part numbers work for a Park Avenue? I think I might try getting my new PA to FE2 specs. Those same spring PN'* can be used on the PA, or is there a different spring to bring it to FE2 specs?

Yeah, those mods, and a set of 225/60/16 Michelin'* will make my new PA handle sweet, I hope!
