IMHO, if you can't afford to buy every thing at once, then buy what you can, when you can (as I'm doing). BUT, don't install anything until you have everything. If you were replacing old items with new STOCK pieces, then that would be fine, but where you are upgrading, I don't think it's wise. especially if you are going to race (I assume AX?).

By stiffening up one end and not the other, you change the cars geomitry. If you stiffen up the front as you plan, you will have massive understeer. Stiffening the rear only will give you oversteer. Either case is not fast and could potentially be dangerous as speed or on the roadway.

Just my $.02, maybe less
