Bars Or Headset?!

Ok I have a major problem here. Im getting a new pair of cranks and either some bars or a headset.

I need new bars because they are pretty much totalled. My friends dad was being a dick and he didnt let me use a bar cutter or a hack saw so he welded my bars down!!! So now they are uneven and the ends are ridged and messed up. Lookin At T-1's or Edwin's. Any other suggestions?!?!

And I need a new headset. The reason is that My headset is never getting tight. When even Im riding my headset get loose, but is still ride-able. But I dont like the feeling of a loose headset. I dont know if its gettin ovalized or what. Im looking at the FSA Pig Unsealed or Aheadset SX-1. Please If any suggestions Answer soon, Im headin to FDR in Philly this weekend!!!!

So Im eventually getting both, but at the moment I need to pick one!! Any post will help if it has something to do with this.

Thankz

if your bars aren't broken or bent, replace the headset first.

FSA makes good headsets. I like t-1 bars but most bars are the same these days. pick what you like

I agree, you bars might be a pain to ride with, but if your headset goes for too long, you could potentially damage the head tube of the frame and thus be forced to buy a new headset, bars, AND frame! Replace the headset first. Either of the ones you specified would work just fine, Im partial to the FSA though.
