Ha nice yeah i have to buy the shocks... Dont even know where to start looking for them. Plus if it came to installation i would have no clue (I usually take it to muffler man to do all my repairs...till i realized they didnt know what they were doing)

Try the local parts stores. Find some nice Monroe Reflexes for your year/model and it'll be great.

Installing.. we are here to help. Ask how to do it or take a browse through the technifo area.

Your year is a couple bolts and done.

That will be a welcome change... ofcourse that will prolly wait ntil after the performance stuff... Which has to wait until the brakes and motor mounts are fixed lol gotta make sure the car is in condition to hold the new gear

That'* why before I modded my car got struts, brakes, all maintenance etc etc.

If you can't stop, turn etc the power is no good to you.

I agree wtih that statement. Im starting to wonder if i should think about a new tranny but the cost of that would be crazy... Backsotry to that is i was in an accident last year and tranny was rebuilt. However, it sometimes slips from 'D' to '3' on its own and im hoping that if the parts are in it woldnt do this more often or cause damage if it does

D to 3 as in the lever pops into three, maybe the cable isn't adjusted properly or......

The 4th gear clutch hub. Usually when these go..it'* gone and never retruns.

Maintainance before mods, you want to make sure your car is in top shape before you start throwing extra power under the hood

Yeah the lever slides... is this something to worry about or is it simply one of those monitor the situation issues?
