Camber bolts at the least but cc plates would be the better. You will need an alignment and you will soon need new shocks if your still using stock ones.

That's it? Nothing else. Just the CC Plate, Alignment and new shocks? I have stock shocks. No need to order struts?

I would do both a decent set of shocks and struts when you can afford so. Also I would recommend get new polyurethane isolators. A lot of people take them off to get a little more drop but it will create nvh. I reused mine as they were still okay and wrapped them with electrical tape to help with cracking in the future.

forget the bolts...C&C plates...and isolators if you want to just install the springs...i just put the SR springs on my car a week ago...i'd say it's barely 1.5" worth of drop if that. if your shocks are shot replace them, but if not don't worry about it. I need new ones, but i still have the oem ones in lol.

enjoy the springs...for me it was about a two hour install because i was doing it alone with only handtools lol

as for the alignment give it a few weeks to settle before doing it or you're wasting your money

Some of the v6 cars got that hood with the pony package. I just bought a gt hood for 60 bucks from a 99 without the scoop, but ill order one from am to fix that. Check you local classifieds, youd be surprised the deals you can find on hoods.

How do able is it to put these on yourself? I bought a set and I know I can do the rear springs but the front looks questionable.
