Yeah, I would love some FM-5's or some other kind of satin finish wheel. I was experimenting with the angels.

You know.. your RIGHT. I would like a decent drop, even though dallas roads can be like a forest wilderness sometimes.. I dont want to damage my exaust, or front clip..
But still, a CORRECT drop on a f-body, is not cheap. Good springs are $250 or more, and the shocks.. woah the shocks.. they can cost up to $400..
Im waiting for a good used set to go on sale on one of the local LSX sites, and for me to also have the $$ to spend at that exact same time to buy some.
nice car, but that grill is fugly and u need wheels
Those pictures dont do my grill justice.. they make it seem WAY smaller than it is.. And as for some wheels.. I sont wettle for less than excllent quality, and I wany 17X11's in the rear... so since I dont have $2000 right now.. I will hold off on the wheels...
there's just something about it i don't like, can't put my finger on it
Those don't look like 315s in the rear.
Yeah, theyre 315's on stock 9.5 SS Rims.. Theyre not as wide as they would be with a correct ZR1.. but its not dangerous..
You can pick up a pro-kit for 230 ish, maybe 240, and UP to 400 on the shocks? You must not be to picky. Hell i would kill if 400 dollars was the most expensive shock package out there. The most expensive one i know of is 2 grand
I think i'm just going with some Bilstien revalves (by Strano) @ 500. Might just get the normal revalves at 400, but i hate to compromise more, as i have already compromised from Koni's all around, to Koni front's/Bilstien revalves by strano on back, to strano revalves all around. I've compromised so much, because i am very poor, and want to get my suspension taken care of so I can get to the headers.
I'd lower it. This is depending on what spring/shock package came from the factory/SLP,and how mny miles are on them. - I don't know how important handling is to you, and how low you want to go, but I'm sure a SLP/Eibach/bilstien package would work nice for you. SLP/Eibach springs that only lower the car an inch as opposed to the 1.5" for the Pro-Kit. Cost about 20 bucks more than the Prokit. Normal Bilstiens are about 350, revalved Bilstiens are about 380, and if you want to upgrade from that, Sam Strano custom revalves them for about 500.
A combination of new and properly matched springs, shocks, and sway bars makes a big diffrence on how these cars take corners.
