borla sounds good...
magnaflow and flowmaster are loud...
as for suspension...
you get what you paid for...
buy cheap get a bad product....

and yes..
if you get your car lowerd 3" (you will be touching ground) you will need chamber kit

just wondering why so low ?

Exhaust wise, the Magnaflow exhaust is about as cheap as you are gonna find a quality exhaust. Also, TruBendz is a company that uses their own piping but slaps on a Magnaflow, Flowmaster or Borla muffler, whichever is your perference. Their prices are pretty good, but some people have complained about their customer service. They also give you the option of picking either aluminized steel or stainless steel.

i was just gonna start off with coilovers but im tryin to stay under 300 for the suspension right now so i might just go for the 2" lowering springs.

Now if i do that instead do i still need a chamber kit?

if u want rice look and tip, hks is for you, otherwise, go with borla or mbrp.

zarelli: u on crack man?

300 and coilovers with components...not gonna happen, but u could get lowering springs and then save for everything else which is pretty useless...

save up like 500, then do suspension, or save up 900 and do coilovers and camber kit.

2" or lower and i would recommend a camber kit and new struts....~1.5" and you should be able to keep the stock setup.

at 3" i'm not sure a camber kit would even bring it back to factory specs.....

as for the exhaust i carry most major manufactures, take a look and shop around. If you see them cheaper somewhere else PM the link and i'll see what i can do.
