good news

i think i am gonna get almost everything fixed by tomorrow. so this i think is the time to upgrade a lil i think? my friends are tellin me that the shocks are out practically the whole suspension is out on thefront right side. so should i go aftermarket or stick to OEM. i have around 2000 (was gonna give to my parents as a payment for my car) but i think they will wait a bit longer cause of this. so should i go after market or not? asking u guys cause i am new and 2000 is my budget not a penny over well maybe a lil but not much. thanks please reply as soon as possible.

okay i jus looked up all the stuff i might want on Enjuku racing. and here it is
- Cusco front OS strut tower bar
- Cusco rear AS strut bar
- Cusco 28mm front sway bar
or - Cusco 18mm rear sway bar (which one should i get)
- Tien HA coilover
total 1961.95

my car doesnt have a tire rod but it has a bracket because my tire wouldnt steer on the passenger side.
should i just get the Tien HA coilovers?

my mechanic opened everything up and looked and told me that the suspension is fine but the arm and the rack and pinion and broken. the arm was broken in 2 peices and and the joint of the rack and pinion was completely messed up. so i guess i wont be buying that Tien setup. i think he will get the job done within $400 so thas a real good deal i think. i also have to pay for my dad's bumper on his car that i accidently messed up about a month ago.

good news he got all the parts and everything now all he has to do is put them on and be ready by thursday. then all i need to do is allignment and some body work and new fog lights. i have another question my speedometer went out like a couple of weeks ago and i think its the speed sensor, but my hicas light also turned on from then on could that light be related to my speedometer not working. extra info after when my speedo went out my hicas light would turn on after five minutes of driving. also my odemeter stoped working but i think that goes hand in hand. so can anyone tell me if my hicas light is related to my speedometer not working?
