Its a daily driver, im only 17, making about 100 - 200 bucks a week. I already installed CPP HD Springs, and some monroe sensatracks (changing them for stiffer shocks). I would love to slam the car someday but i would need new wheels and tires with different offset.

I would go with CBR lower's for now. They cost a little more up front but the quality of the parts will save you money over time.

CPP makes a good product at a good price. Approx $400. CBR is better product by many on here but the price is much more. I Have the CPP mini kit and cant complain. I also have the 2" lowering springs.

I bought the 2" drop HD springs from CPP and had to send them back and go with stock height HD springs because my nova bottoms out too much.. How are those springs working for you?

Yes the upgrade is worth it, but you need an understanding of where you are taking the car or you may end up having to do things twice, ultimately costing you more.

The general consensus I can find is that CPP is better than stock and CBR is better than CPP. Prices for the two are in line with the quality, i.e. CBR costs more than CPP.

That said if you want CBP rack and pinon steering someday (the only R&P 'bolt on' that I could find), the CPP kit won't work with the CBR R&P. So if you eventually want R&P steering, it may make more sense for you to bite the bullet and pay a little extra for the CBR arms now. If you know for a fact you don't want R&P and you are willing to sacrifice a little quality (but still get a huge upgrade from stock) then the CPP kit may be what you're looking for.

This is exactly right......best advice you could get. Yes, you pay more, but there is no comparison to the quality of the CBR parts...
