1) Yes
2) I have no idea. But Korman does tend to sell junk.
3) Define best? Ground Control are hollow bars, infinately adjustable, but really not street sways (rattle, etc)
4) Don't crash. X brace improves torsional rigidity. Turner has weld in kits to reinforce front subframe and rear subframe mount points. I haven't heard of street cars needing them, but they wouldn't hurt.
5) Yes, but I prefer H&R or Eibach over RD, for any parts, including sway bars.
