My cars suspension is pretty much shot. I wanted to know from anyone who has an X-Brace, Is it worth it? Can you feel the difference? and what else should I buy to pair up with this, (excluding shocks and springs). Thanks

Some people will tell you they can really tell a difference. The guy that works on my car has installed a bunch of them, he says you can not tell a difference until you are almost to the limit. It basically helps your car not to push as much at the limit. A better upgrade would be sway bars (but also more expensive) or perhaps strut mounts or the like (help protect your investment). So if you auto-x and/or track your car ever, then it would be worth buying because our cars really do push a lot through corners on tracks/auto-x. If not save if from something else. Because you shouldn't be driving fast enough on the street to make use of it.

thanks. Im thinking about buying xbrace but I was thinking what else I need to make sure everythings up and running. I got brembos and PBRs all around and I cant take advantage of that because of the stupid suspension im guessing.

Bushings, control arms, things like that. I believe on www.bavauto.com or www.pelicanparts.com they have a kit that has all of the bushings ect. or you could upgrade the eurathane bushings. A little more noise but they will last longer and are stiffer.
