    get subframe connectors. if you like pullin corners, they make a big difference. definetly buy the weld in ones!!


    wait until you can afford a some of the really nice exhaust systems. like a GMMG or maybe a corsa catback.


    what exhaust were you considering?

    For me exhaust has always been first. Sound is half the fun. SFC def should be next though,

    If you plan on keeping the car for some time then I'd do SFCs, but if you don't plan on having the car for very long ie 2-3 years then do the catback.

    depends what do you want to do with the car? turns go sfc. look into umi stuff from stranoparts.com. bolt in or weld ons they are bouth good. i have bolt ons and love them. if its more of a drag car go cat back. magnaflow is my #1. if you look at some of the local auto parts stores you may find a factory dealer and get a lot better price then most places.

    I know I should do the shocks, just not looking forward to the fronts, so I keep putting it off, guess I probably should do them next.

    When I ordered my Camaro, I purchased Kenny Brown double diamond subframe connectors a month before I took delivery, had them installed with 20 miles on the odometer. I've been happy with the decision ever since; it made for a great starting point to my other modifications plus it provides for another jacking point.

    Not really hard, I just don't like messing with coil overs, lots of energy built up when you compress that spring.

    The better the spring compressor the easier it is

    Got the sfc's in today, pretty simple install, they look really nice, too bad no one is ever going to see them. I live on a dirt road and they stopped about 90% of the rattling. So they are doing something. Just did the brakes at the same time so I havn't done any real driving to see much of a difference, want to give the brakes a couple hundred miles first.
