Im only juding this by my Taurus has the pro kit (1.2" drop)and doesnt need them but my Honda has the sportline kit (2" drop) which DID need them.
Alignment kit? You mean the adjustable ball joints? Any drop will have a slight negative camber, which the adjustable ball joints can fix. Its really up to you if you want them. From factory only the front toe is adjustable, while the rear toe and camber are both adjustable.

liquified56 Well i just took on this project as well, everything's ordered and ready to go to the shop on Monday. She's an 06 GLS V6 with about 130k- original shocks and springs that are completely shot (one mount isn't even attached anymore), 19x8.5 38o/s rims if i remember correctly. Here's what I ordered from Tirerack(Before finding this post lol)

Eibach 4240.140 Pro Kit
Eibach 5.67195K Alignment kit (Adj ball joints - Have my fingers crossed after reading this whole post lol)
KYB 340024 front struts - V6(341476 shows up as a front shock no engine call out)
KYB 349060 rear shocks
Monroe front Strut mounts

Here are some pics of her on stock (worn) springs and struts/shocks, I will try and post some more after the install.






Cant wait to feel less body roll and a car that doesn't feel like a 75 Delta 88 in the corners

Were these for a pair, or one 1pc each? Rockauto.com has them about half the cost, but probably they are for singles.
Those would be price per piece. Most are gonna be priced for one unless there is a package special for two. I see a few Sonata sway bar link in pairs sometimes on ebay.

Ooh ooh ooh - got part numbers for the links and bushings? I'd like to order those at the same time I order the strut mounts.

Thanks,

That's for fronts - I would always call and double check, I tried to locate my ebay item that I bought but I couldn't find it in my summary - pretty sure that was it up there though.
Thanks, I see rockauto.com has them for $23.79 each. I'm also getting the rears for $19.66 each, plus about $11 shipping for the lot. Wish I'd thought to order them previously with the GR-2's so I could have saved on shipping. I think I'll also get the links while I'm at it.

to widen the holes? I used a drill bit... didn't have a rotary tool on hand. Taking off the end link was pretty strait forward. Didn't need special tools.
