For the suspension go with either the Eibach pro kit or go for the SVT suspension. When I get my tax return I'm getting my exhaust, and headers.

my tax return is going into the Trip Fund this year. Me and the G/F are prolly going down to Naples, FL this year and we'll need gas, spending $, and other supplies. All and All tax return is a great way to save for that.....BUT that SVT suspension is looking quite nice

no tax return, because I adjust my withholding so that I don't give the government an interest free loan!
