Monday, March 01, 2010 11:51 AM
i have an 05 4dr ls and i just cant seem to find anything nice i want to do or put on my car; ive been looking for front an back strut bars, a good looking body kit that actually fits my dual magnaflow exhaust, a nice hood that fit my car and will look good with the body i find or choose, and i need some help cleaning up my engine bay a little bit, oh and this is my DD so i cant do to much crazy stuff to it cuz i do drive it every day. so please feel free to express how you, your ideas or opinions cuz im open for anything.

$300 Brand new strut mounts also.

Did you buy just springs? My setup comes with struts,springs,strut mounts. If you put lowering springs on stock struts then you will blow them and it will ride like crap afterwords.

I have had lowering springs on my older car for 3 years and not a problem and of course its going to be bumpy thats what will happen any time you lower any car. granted if you put after market "performace" struts on the car it will cusion the ride a lil bit better but you still going to have a bouncy ride. i now have air ride on my car and its still bouncy as hell. so trey you will be fine with what set up you are getting and the setup that the guy with the blue cav is trying to get you to buy is crap it still looks stock just search the photos and media section he had pics of it posted and it didnt look much diffrent at all

Damn calm down pep boys isn't that bad. That have some good deals.
And no I never had the ecotech inside sticker I HAD the ecotec inside sticker but its gone now.
If my car were still on the road,I would have gladly walked you.
It WILL be back on the road though so don't worry.
Snow storm+slush+bald tires = wreckage. Not a @!#$ty driver.

well i am glad to here your getting it back on the road because dont get me wrong, cody is it? i acutally like your cav it has come a long way from where you started with and if you search your pervious post i have support what you have done to your car but what my firend, trey is looking for is more for looks so lowering springs on stock struts is not a bad decission...... and for the price of those springs and how good of a drop it is you just cant beat it and just fyi i didnt get my rims from pp boys ask ecoclean where there from orginally becasue hes the one im bought them from not pp boys...

I'm just jerking your chain man.....lmao. There was some that looked like them awhile back at pep boys.
It kinda offended me when you said my setup is crap when I spent a mere $500 dollars on it.
Its a really good ride to tell you the truth,a way better ride than my d-specs and tenzo r's I have now.

But yeah Its cody. I went to the 08 LSB I think I saw you there. It really saddened me when I wrecked my car. It was starting to look really good. I just got the windows tinted and put my third tranny in it...lol I was REALLY hard on that car. I raced it EVERY weekend and never skipped a beat. But anyways back on topic.
Go ahead and put the springs on it won't hurt I guess. Just don't expect alot out of them as far as ride quality.

well i didnt mean to offend you man but i can see your point i should of had used a better choice of words..... and i hear you on the wreck part i hate to see anybodys hard work get trashed like that..... and you dont remember when i met you at the wataburger in dallas? that was your first time meeting the texas j's also back when i had my red cav also right when stephen installed his airide, man that was a long time ago.... but good luck to you and your rebuild hope all goes well and you plan on coming out to the bash this year?



Re: Slowly putting my car together
Friday, March 05, 2010 3:16 PM

That was a LONG time ago.
