Thumbs up New Evo II RS owner!

Hi peeps! I'm new in the Evo world, I'm glad to be here and I found this website on the web. I have many questions but I'm not quite sure if I can start to do it here.

Basically I bought a rolling chassis because my car doesn't have a engine yet. The engine was disassembly for someone who couldn't put it together again and there some missing parts on it. The front sway bar is broken and I have been trying to find on the web the Whiteline front sway bar code but no luck, the rear one is BMR56X if someone can confirm, any other brand or a website that I can go would be helpful (any other information like car name in other countries to search will be appreciated, shared parts with other Evo models, etc). Also I want to know the codes of the chassis braces and some advised about suspension.

This is my first Lancer Evolution and I would like to start to put everything together and take the advantage of upgrade what I can. Will be a long process because of my budget at the moment, but I'm pretty sure that I will reach what I'm looking for!

Cheers from Guatemala City 502

Regards,
Rodolfo

Hello from a fellow early RS owner.
I have BMR56X on my car, it was a decent upgrade. You'll want another Evo 2/3 front sway bar to replace your broken bar, since aftermarket front sway bars are rare and not necessarily an upgrade. Look for roof rust, as that car looks like it's been sitting in less than ideal conditions for a long time. I bet a lot of your bushings need to be replaced from sitting and dry-rotting too, which can be very tricky to find. The parts for these are scattered at many different sites; Ultra Racing makes a bunch of braces, and the suspension choice depends on what your needs are.

Thank you for the information RS200 I will open a new post with the pictures about how it was my and how it is now. I'm trying to do a budget to start to buy some parts and basically I'm I'm starting from scratch and it will be a really long project but I'm really excited a have it. Thank you for the information, I will be posting any questions during the process. Regards
