Probably around a grand for parts plus installation. I got a Pro-Kit and both front and rear anti-roll bars for 1,400 for everything so after subtracting the bars it came out for a grand for the springs/shock and labor.

Don't forget camber plates and bolts if your going that low.

For that low you should probably get some sportlines or H&R race springs, might rub though with the crappy roads we have here in the Midwest.

yeah, but i dont have any money really saved up.
i just put $400 towards some winter wheels and i still gotta pay insurance for a 16 yr boy.
the $400 pretty much wiped out my spending funds that i had saved..

Nice chop, try one without the pin-stripe running down the length of the car and see if you like it.
yes now that i think of it, i will probably try that tomorrow.

i already didnt like the look of it, but i didnt think about photoshopping it off. do you know how i could remove for real if i decided that i liked it better off?

thanks

Looks good, but here are my suggestions:
- color match door handles, side trim and mirror caps
- nightshade sidemarkers (the clear ones just don't flow with everything else IMO)
Otherwise everything looks great! Clean and simple.

BTW, good luck on ROTM! [thumb]

painting those parts just takes a lot of patience and time. Grab a couple extras at a junk yard to practice on. I like where you are going with it though!
