    For shocks and struts Bilstein or???
    After that just put new bushings in everything!

    c5z28, changed the rearend fluid.
    depends on budget

    Dr, yes I totally agree.

    As for the budget on shocks and struts I didnt really want to get too expensive. But I dont want junk either!lol

    For shocks it is what you can afford
    bilstein (well built but next to kyb the cheapest one to get)
    kyb agx (nothing less as they are mid grade)
    koni etc however much money you have.
    if you choose eibach it's more for the stance, if you can strano's lower well and I believe bmr ripped off strano and now have his design for less.
    What kind of fluid did you put in, you need the diff additive in there so it keeps the noise down.

    and for slotted they don't hurt but they will cut down on the life of the pad, and it cost more to get slotted so-

    c5z28, I put 80/90 in her. But I didn't put any diff additive, do I need to go back and put some in?
    Anybody, I'm off work today so I can do it today. If I don't do it today it will be 1 1/2 weeks before I can do it!

    What else could I do to her today while I'm off work???

    What brand did you use? When I did mine I used 75-90 from redline and it had the additive already in it, check the bottles you used for the additive otherwise you will need to go get it. And you will need to take some out before you put extra in otherwise it will come out of the breather.

    plugs are easy it just takes a long time for some people. its the #8 that gets people. i would do the plugs yourself unless you''ve just got money burning a hole in your pocket.


    for wires i would go with MSD. and if they are stock i would replace them since they arent that expensive

    if you go to www.summitracing.com they have a trickflow top end kit thats rated for 515 hp with just the stock bottom end (at least i think) if it was me i would go ahead and get a new ls1 block and rebuild a completely new motor or at least strip the one in your car now and have it magnafluxed and blueprinted and all that good stuff, but i must say if you do any kinda aftermarket cam get some after market heads, but that trickflow top end kit is the bang for your buck
