    Spending 1500.00 on suspension, this look about right?

    Keeping it the stock height with the stock springs.

    Getting:

    All UMI:

    Non adjustable LCA's with poly (Already installed)
    Non adjustable Panhard with poly (Already installed)
    3 point subframes (Bolt in, but will weld once I am sure I like them) PLus I have to install them in my driveway then take them somewhere to do the final weld.

    Non adjustable Torque arm
    TA relocation kit
    Bilstein HD shocks all around.

    I figured non adjustable would be stronger and since I am not lowering it, they will be fine?

    Please let me know if I am missing anything.

    Once the frame/suspension is tightened up, time for the 12 bolt and new 4l60......

    Looks good to me. UMI is good stuff. I am upgrading from 2 point to 3 point SFC's on our car. Just be sure to install the connectors with the weight of the car on the suspension.

    Since your doing the shocks toss in new springs too. That way you don't have to do the work twice.

    You might check out LCA relocation brackets. They can help aid in gaining traction, and you won't need adjustable lca's to use them.

    Although, you may be able to get them as an option with the new rear already welded on.

    Thanks for choosing UMI!

    From an engineering standpoint, I prefer non-adjustable stuff for a non-lowered car. Less moving parts (i.e. adjusters and jam nuts) equals less maintenance and more reliability. Sure, our adjustable products are completely reliable but also require periodic inspection.

    Sounds like a nice ride.
