I'm looking to improve the handling of the stock suspension on my Spyder and would ideally like to buy a set of adjustable coilovers. However, given the budget required (~$1,000 minimum for a decent set), I was wondering if the addition of a stiffer (Che) front swaybar to the stock setup would offer some improvement in the meantime, for what is currently a road-only car? I like the idea of upgrading progressively and learning about the effects of individual components too. My main aim is to try and dial out some of the body roll inherent in the stock config. and I figured that for $100 it might be worth a try?

Do you think it's rational to just start with a stiffer front swaybar and leave the stock rear one? The previous owner fitted a square 15"-225 tyre setup, so I thought that just stiffening the front would maybe help compensate by moving the balance of grip back to the rear a bit, in addition to reduced body roll at the front?

If all you're looking to do is reduce body roll, new swaybars is the most direct and inexpensive approach.

You could do that.
Some people have actually removed the rear bar entirely and liked the results.

Do you think it's necessary to use the uprated Twos-r-Us endlinks for a road-only car with the Che front sway?

I put all of the TRD strut braces on mine (top/bottom and front/back) with Koni shocks and a set of Eibach springs and have been very happy with it.
