That it does. $58 shipped for an entire control arm including ball joint and bushings? Yeah, I'll take that. I just ordered one now.

When the Bonneville gets sold, I'll order one for the other side, new headlight assemblies, and more. I'll make a pretty damn big order.

They appear to have some oxidization on the inside as well. Not something I want to spend hours polishing. Besides, I have to build speakers for my father in law and I'm trying to get a piano black finish. You have any idea how much polishing that will take? lol

If you really think I'll get the same results, I'll save myself the cash and polish them myself. So tell me how easy it is.

Bonneville got sold yesterday so I now have spending cash to make upgrades for this car.

For starters, I ordered some amps. One of each of these:

http://www.bostonacoustics.com/GT-50...shed-P713.aspx
http://www.bostonacoustics.com/GT-40...shed-P712.aspx

The GT40 will power the front components and tweeters, and the GT50 will power the rear midbass 6x9'*, full range 4", and the two IDQ10V2 subs.

Looking at some 17" rims and tires now on tirerack.com but I'm not sure about tire sizes.

What'* the largest width tire I can get on a 7.5" rim on a 2000 Regal? I'd like to go larger than a 225. I would like a 235 minimum, preferrably a 245.

From my understanding, they do come with a warranty.

The GT40 will be bridged, to possibly a pair of these:

http://www.massiveaudio.com/store/pr...cat=303&page=1

The GT50 will run a pair of 4" full range drivers and a pair of very beefy Cadence 6x9 midbass drivers.

The only problem I'm faced with is as far as the Massive Audio comps is: will they fit in the door pods of a 2000 Regal even with a slight bit of modification? These look pretty...massive, lol. What'* the maximum mounting depth of a speaker on a 2000 Regal door pod?


Edit...just confirmed. 1 year warranty on these amps.
