    I think I'm gonna have to upgrade on breaks for mine
    cuz when I'm goin fast it's soo hard to stop it.
    And the pads look good still

    and you do all that work your self?
    How much you spend on the rear end

    The only thing I didn't do myself was building the rear- had a buddy of mine do that who does amazing work. I bought the car from a guy in Booneville, MS (yes, that is actually the name of a town in Mississippi!) who had bought it at auction after it had been repo'd in Tampa (did a Carfax to trace most of the history before I bought it so I could negotiate the price).

    The reason your brakes may be hard to stop even though the pads look good is probably due to glazing. Many high speed stops cause the pads to heat up, melting the pad and then cooling to a shiny surface. Best bet is to replace the pads and turn the rotors. $120 for all the pads (went with Autozone ceramics). Couple of hours- some anti-squeal and anti-seize and you're done. Make sure you pull the sliders apart and clean all the old grease off them and then coat them with anti-seize and you won't have to worry about them hanging up.

    As for the rear- $200 for the gear, $160 for the cover, $25 for the studs, and my buddy charged me $525 for the bearings, seals, races, and labor.

    Interior wise- I'm still trying to decide. Gotta' start with the door panels- damn cracks in the panels will have to fixed and then I'll start the custom work. Still coming up with some ideas, but this will be my first real custom interior job outside of custom stereo systems. I'll post pics as soon as I get going.

    I used to buy cars at auction b4. For great prices
    I'm guessing you got yours for a good price rite?
    How much u paid?

    I paid 4,700 for my maró 98ls1 6spd t-tops red and blk
    117 k miles super clean interior. Exterior was ok
    i bought it 6 months ago

    I'm gonna get drilled and sloted rotors for the front
    i hope it makes a diference
    and I will defenetly. Do that too. Change pads and clean it up a little

    My mechanic. Said he can do everithing, gaskets oil and 3.73 for 450 or 500 at the most. So u think dats a good deal?

    Paid just at $7k for a 2000 Firehawk with the infamous rare spoiler. Had 120k on it- since August I've put another nearly 20k on it. Day 2- replaced steering column due to bad bearings and loose tilt. Second week- brakes. End of September- rear end. December- Clutch. Jan and February- radio. Next month- headers. It's been non-stop.

    450-500 isn't bad on the rear- just make sure they use quality bearings and seals- lots of people have complained about the axle bearings going out and if you use cheap bearings I can promise you'll be replacing them again. Replacing the bearings involves pulling the axles which means pulling the rear cover off again- not difficult but a real pain considering it can be avoided by using quality bearings.

    To post pics, there are instructions on how to use web services to do it- I have my own site and I ftp pics up to it and embed from there.
