    $995 boy that's expensive. I suppose that's going to lower the car as well. I would be concerned about making alignment problems worse with this or any other suspension modifications.

    BC Racing in general are amazing coilovers. They are probably the best coilovers on the market for the Mirage. Unfortunately, they are way too expensive for the Mirage.

    Yes they are fully adjustable. You wouldn't have to drop it, but you could if you wanted. In the picture it shows you the tools (that come with it) to do it.

    Well I spent $1k on my wheels and tires for my Mirage. After 15k miles my stock struts and springs are already getting soft. This would stiffen that right up and allow me to lose an inch or two without worrying about rubbing issues over bumps. I do drive my car for a living though and basically track it all day long. This would be an ideal upgrade for me... After the wheels, tires, UR bars, and this suspension; I'm sure I would get a much better private sale down the road than trade in value. Either way $1k for a 400% better ride is completely worth it for me

    If Shipping from Across the world would hurry up I would have my front lower and upper braces on right now too! Review and pics to come!!!

    What do you think of this style of rear sway bars? Pic is not mine just found from Thai group.

    Isn't that a torsion bar instead of a sway bar?

    They're really the same thing for the most part.

    A torsion beam suspension is what the Mirage has as is stock on the rear end. A anti-roll bar, or sway bar is an independent bar that limits roll.

    What is the main difference between a torsion bar and a anti-roll bar in vehicles?

    I'm curious what the endlinks are bolted to with that setup. I'm pretty sure that would have an impact on how effective this swaybar design is. I would almost think the swaybar should be flipped around, with the endlinks attached to the rear suspension and the bar attached to the body.

    They're probably mounted to the same holes that the hitch gets attached to. It would be quite easy to run a bolt into a plate, insert into frame rail access hole and the add a 90 degree bracket that would attach to the end link. 99% sure that's what was done with the above bar.
