Im running all stock in the front with ps. CBR lowers & power R/P. Eventually upgrade to CBR uppers and single adjustable coil overs. I just dont think you can beat em as far as quality.

And that reminds me since Id ditching the old stuff I dont have a place to keep it but dont want to just junk it (although its pretty much junk from the factory) so if anybody needs it for whatever you might want it for let me know. Pay for shipping and its pretty much yours as is I dont want it

I like a la carte. Some TCI modified lower arms with my home grown bushings, some SPC upper arms, an Arizona Nova cross member, Speedway engineering sway bar, ride tech air springs and hydraulic shocks, TRW steering rack with some baer tracker tie rod ends to cover the adjustment. I like to pick and choose. And so far the car has NOT put me into the curb Not that I havent tried. Bad on ME!!! JR

My front end "stuff"....... http://www.stevesnovasite.com/forums...d.php?t=154977

TCI IFS and TCI Torque Arm/mini tub here. I would have gone CBR if I would have had a front end or any suspension at all on mine when I got it. Couldn't pass up the deal that Tim had on the TCI stuff (plus he is a wealth of knowledge). Saved alot going through him over anyone else.

Sidenote: CBR has great quality parts and support. I did go with their radiator set up for my LS6.

BTW Chuck. That is one Bada$$ ride.

Cool

I have had the full CPP treatment on my wagon for two years, heavy sway bar, spindles, all of it, car handles great and rides nice but i still hate how tight the stock fender wells are on the headers. I may remove it all this spring and install a TCI clip. I'm also new to this site so hope this gets listed okay.
