Default Lowering and Wheels

Hello, I'm new to the forum.
I've been reading and researching befor posting this,
but I can't seem to find out the right info I need.
I have a 1995 Pontiac Bonneville SE
with a stock (as far as I Know) 3800 SERIES II, 3.8L V6, L36
I would like to lower it 1.5 - 2 inches and
put some real shiny chrome 18 inch wheels and tires.

Thanks for the info on the MAF screen and gutting the air box.

Will a newer stock cd player/radio fit in mine, if so, what years.

And what about leather 60/40 seats, what years and models will fit mine.

Thanks Bro'* for all the info

is that where you have yours set? Mine is at more of a V. Maybe I'm missing something?

N8ster, check out Cardomain. I believe there are few 'Ville'* with 20" rims out there.

I guess because I've always seen the eq'* with sort of a V shape but your'* is sort of a rounded check mark(maybe we should call it a Nike swoosh? ). Just a little different that what I normally see. But like you said it'* customized to your stereo and component configuration. It'* all good.

Im not really sure if any did come in 60/40 leather skins. But your best bet is to try anm aftermarket company, or go to a shop.

But an amp and a couple of subs would be nice too...
I actually have an amp and sub box(2 10"'*) hooked to my factory stereo. Still have factory speakers as well. I'm thinking of changing the 6x9'* to aftermarket. Factory speakers hurt a little when a good song comes on and volume goes up!

I do have the gain system. It'* what I use to control the speaker box level. I play on just running the regular wires to the new 6x9'* and then run the dual coil wires to the box exclusively(right now they are still connected to the stock 6x9'* and I spliced into them for the box). clear as mud?
