Phils 2015 Build....Lets actually install these parts!
Wednesday, January 07, 2015 8:16 AM
As the thread title hints at..I havent done anything to my car. But I have collected more parts!

This is my last 2 build years: http://www.j-body.org/forums/read.php?f=46&i=477051&t=477051

Last year just flew by for me. With working out of town most of the time, to moving towns, to having no place to actually work on my car. It really held me back

This year I have a great garage to work on the car...come spring. This is how it currently sits lol.

These are the parts I have collected in the past bit.

Wanted to freshen up some stock parts so got new balljoints, blower motor, evap valve, knock sensor



Team green LSD with stiffer springs

MRZ Performance billet headrest brace and hvac knobs

Vortec TB and clamp

Bosch split tip 60lb injectors and clips

Solid rear coilover mounts

MD Wilwood adapter -------------Honestly doubt ill use this but figured id support him

Also, what a great view from your driveway! No, not the buried Cav, but look at the town below - so nice!

Sad to say Brad they dont fit. I guess i had a bit of a brain fart when I measured and they are about a inch too short. I contacted them about making a set for cavaliers. Hope they come through.

Rears are from the GP running in the suspension forum, as for the fronts they are the ones that come from Bc, as I have BC coilovers

I have a set as well that I have yet to put on, just need to acquire some new ball joints and then slap em in. Where you pick up you ball joints? And what brand? Moog?

I got them from Rock Auto....very affordable place to buy parts.

They are the Ac Delco professional line. A little more expensive but for me being fairly low and the extra stres it puts on them, I wanted the best.

I should also add that when I was getting my alignment at Dales I asked them about what brands of suspension and steering components they recommend and they said Spicer if not OEM. I believe through Napa. I never checked prices though. They said Moog was crap though.

That being said I wasnt overly happy with Dales. They were ok and did align my car well and it drives better then it ever did, but they have attitudes.

I love how thorough you are in researching and building. Definitely sub'd for more!

When the time comes for tuning, let me know. I'm happy to share what I've learned from mine.

Decided to show my started projector build and what it looks like vs stock...


Re: Phils 2015 Build....Lets actually install these parts!
Sunday, January 25, 2015 1:52 PM
You going to keep the projector houseing clear or paint them black?
I might have my eye on a set of Mini Morimotos H1 with Gattling Gun shrouds, but seeing yours as clear and Vinnys sexy black ones makes me think black would look better.

You going no Halo on those ones?

Youll prolly find the mh1 will not fit without either cutting the back or heating the lens up and bulging it out.

I may quickly spray these black and do comparison pics.
