    New Shocks, Springs, A Arms anything else?

    I am going to be putting in the shocks and springs and tubular A arms. Should I go with SLP Shocks and springs or are there any better choices?

    Car is stock with only an intake and tuning.

    Is there anything else I should change as well while I have the suspension apart? Maybe a K Member...

    Want a good mix of drag, street, cornering and good streetability.

    I will probably be having my shop do all of the work depending on the chedda.

    Thanks

    yep get the stranos and konis if you have the money, then adjustable torque arm for sure, do you have stock sway bars? another thing is what are your trying to do? drag racing set up or auto x?

    All of this is for my brothers 2002 Z28.

    He just wants a good all around combination, comfortable drive, cornering, drag race.

    So he should probably get adjustable shocks?

    Still stock sway bars we want to switch those and a panhard bar too.

    For shocks I would either get konis or SLP bilstein shocks. I actually just ordered SLP Bilsteins with Vogtland springs. I haven't put them on yet so I can't tell you as far as quality how they are. I would also get a sfc, personally I would get the 3 point version but either would probably be fine. If you are getting lowering springs you should definitely get LCA relocation brackets, LCAs, Panhard relocation kit, and Panhard bar. If you don't have the money to do all of that then I would just get the LCA relocation brackets and the Panhard relocation kit.

    You don't need the panhard relocation kit for lowering a vehicle...that gives more clearance for true duals, but nothing for lowering. The adj. panhard rod would be necessary to recenter the rear after lowering (I actually have my UMI on-car adj. piece for sale since I switched to a watts link). The LCA brackets will allow you to correct the LCA angle to prevent wheelhop. Another thing you might consider is an adj. torque arm to reset your pinion angle.
