With all you have now I would go with a rear disc conversion. And correct me if I'm wrong but only coupes came with the rear sway bar in '09 afaik, you could get one of those as well. You'd even have money left for the dogbone after those two things too.

Add a set of cams= Massive has crower cams for the '08+ cars. A poly dogbone for sure. CFM's tubular control arms, & 4-point lower stress brace. How 'bout a Steeda rear bar & a 22mm front bar. Want more lower= 2''/2.2'' get Massive's Omni kit & Eibach's sportline system for a ''00-''05 cars. It'd be great if you could get a torsen for your atx. How 'bout a 23 head? Or how 'bout a 23 motor? What 'bout suremotor sports or JBR= James Barone racing motor/trans mounts? Go for performance.

Uhm with what you have so far, I am going to say headlight retrofit. My friends eagle eyes in his impala made me so happy I went HID retrofit and not let some chinese kids make my headlights!

impala eagle eyes
I was impressed while it was against the garage for the cheap price with hids

then he backed away and I just laughed

Besides, the full retrofit kit will only cost you about $280 an you'll have plenty left for something else.

Your rear bar is a 20mm. A great upgrade would be Eibachs 25mm or Steedas 28.6mm.

thought about getting eibachs front and rear sway bar kit... a retro fit could be an option... i do love the look of my eagle eyes with the leds and the halo rings but the cut off is not the best... i would want to get black housing headlights or i would have to open them up and paint... i am already running Morimoto h9 5000k... so i would only need new bulbs and the projectors so the retrofit wouldnt cost me all that much... and i know there is quite a few people on here who sell there skills at doing retrofits

I consider the retrofit a performance mod. Your lighting is waaay better and you can drive faster at night!

I've done 2 retrofits so far on the focus and it's actually pretty fun. Easily done within a day. I'd suggest doing the, sure you lose the halo rings and leds. But you could always ad them to your retrofit (I decided not to because it's one more thing that can break).
