Paragon products

Has anyone dealed with them? Good service? I think they have great prices, im looking into buying the 30 mm front sway bar thats hollow, the M030 from the 968. Is 276 dollars a good deal? They sell the rear 19 mm sway bar off the 968 for about 145. Is that a good deal? If anyone else has these for sale, give me an email at roastin944turbo@yahoo.com

Couple more question about the springs and torsion bars they have for sale on their site. The spring kit is only 104 dollars for 200 lb and 114 for 250 lb. What is stock stiffness/ lb amount? Will the 200 lb be any stiffer than stock or should i go with the 250 lb to really feel the difference? What is the size of the stock torsion bars? Will KYB struts work with stiffer springs that lower the car 1 inch?

Sorry for SO many questions! Just want the best setup!
Thanks alot for sharing your wisdom!

I've got a nearly new one I'd sell for $225 with bushings, still has the porsche stickers on it. Instead of the rear M030 bar, try to pick up a weltmeister with the 30mm in front. I'd go at least to the 250lb(don't quote me on this but I think stock is around 180??) but plan on doing the torsion bars too. With the 200's I wouldn't worry about them yet. I'm running closer to 350(street)now. BTW: I also have the other parts you're needing.

Good luck,
Jared

I like Paragon quite a bit. But once again, this might not be the best place for such a conversation; Pelican is a competitor and has similar prices / more selection.
Feel free to email me if you need details of some sort.

I've spent a fair amount of money at Paragon, and I've always been very pleased with their service. I don't think Pelican is really a direct competitor, since Pelican deals mostly in OEM replacement parts and Paragon is geared more toward aftermarket performance parts.
