I've decided to bite the bullet and get both the RS springs and sways done. For initial setup on the RS sways, which setting would you suggest? The car is my daily driver, lots of highway time, and no track use.

It still has the OEM tires, but those will go next spring. Any suggestions on a summer tire that won't be too harsh with this setup?

Start middle position front and rear, adjust to taste from there.

Two questions:
Are new endlinks required to go with the RoadsterSport sways?
Why are the collars needed?

New links not required, particularly for street use.

Links are handy for lowered cars in particular to get geometry right.

Just got the sways installed. 2 hours total labor, which is fair. Wow - what a difference! I didn't realize how much roll there was until it was gone. Even on my snows (16" Blizzak) the setup is a blast!

Since I've had the springs and sways done, I notice some squeaking noise in the rear. Mostly at low speed on uneven pavement. Any idea whether this is normal?
