To answer the question on 180 vs 140 springs, I recommend the 180#. I have had both, I prefer the 180#. I can still lift the inside front tire when I hit the gas comming out of a turn on a autox course. Stiffer springs can cure that problem, but I would have to go to coil overs and #300 springs.

For the front, I have a 911 Carrera setup with 23mm torsion bars with a 22mm sway bar. I would replace the bushings before I would install the new torsion bars, other wise 22 or 23mm bars will rub.

As far as which end to do first... All should be done at the same time (springs, shocks, swaybars, T-bars, bushings), then alignment and corner balance. The problem is that this can get expensive (over $1200)

You might want to try a set of race rims with the Komo Victor racers first. BIG difference.

Anyway, good luck w/the project
