Suspension Questions

So, i want to attain better handling in my 1998 GTI VR6. I dont have a lot of money, and some of this will probably be Xmas presents from parents. So.. i dont want to ask for some hella awesome Coilovers! *grin* Additionally i want my ride height to be around 1.5" lower than stock.
What kind of shocks/springs should i ask for/get?
What about sway/stress bars? And, what is the difference between the two?
Im not going for lots of drop. or even changing my height... but, i am going for that aggresive look and tighter feel. Thanks everyone!
Suspension is one of those things i dont know much about yet : ) i havent taken it off my MG yet! *grin* Nothing like knowing nothing when taking apart a classic british sports car! Well, im gonna start putting it back together soon....

Oh, sorry, yeah, thats right, im new to the forum. I guess i shouldnt ask questions. or is it that because im new i dont have the right to ask questions? My bad buddy. MAYBE you should do some research in the attitude forum.

chill man, he was just suggesting you take a look there, because there are a ton of good posts about suspension in there. You could get H&R sport springs, and bilstein shocks, the H&R cup kit, lowers about 2 inches, but is supposedly really sweet, etc.... do a search, good luck.
