30mm sway bar + slotted discs

Two new additions have been made to my car. A 30mm front sway bar has removed almost all bodyroll from the front of the car. (the konis seemed to remove most of the rear). The car feels alot safer and confident to drive. and also slotted discs have been added and i highly recomend these to everyone as the stopping distance has greatly shortened. I picked up the sway bar for 180 and the discs for 110 each.

I'm hoping to do the front sway bar on mine soon.
Just wondering if nylothane bushes are the way to go also. Will they make a big difference?

i managed to get my slotted dba rotors for $88 each and bendix untimate pads for $80 and yeah as u said it greatly improves the stopping distance.
mind u the pads do work better once warmed up, when i change them id probably put in the next step down ones in, i think there performax pads.

was it hard to replace the sway bar?
