Shocks and suspension

So I'm going to make the suspension mod on my 02' vert towards the end of the summer. My research and tuner suggested Eibach pro-kit springs, Tokico shocks/struts, and Caster/camber kit. I want to do all of these of course, but I'm on a tight budget and looking for the best place to purchase them from. Ebay is always a little cheaper, but sometimes seems too risky, thus I think I'm going to go with Maximum motorsports for the shocks/struts and CC plates, but I don't think they carry Eibach thus just looking for a seller on those two and some advice. Thanks and sorry I know that this topic has already been discussed recently. Need-4-speed in Clearwater Fl quoted me at about $500 for the enitre install, which I think is pretty fair, but what do ya'll think?
Thanks.

Re: Shocks and suspension

MM C/C plates for sure, Pro Kit should do just fine. Look up Tokico Blues for shocks and struts. I'm getting all of those installed for free, thanks to a buddy, and then just have to get alignment.

Re: Shocks and suspension

CHeck out http://www.mustangevolution.com/foru...suspension.com as well as Atomic Performance - TA Performance, Pro 5.0, SCT, C&L, JLT Cold Air for your springs and shocks/struts.

In reality, you can install the springs and shocks/struts in your back yard in a weekend. It is not overly difficult. IF you have any buddies that are mechanically inclined, have them come over and make a day of it. It's intimidating at first, but once you see how it's done, it's a no brainer. Same with the CC plates really, and then just get to a shop to get your alignment setup.

But either way, check out the links above....they should have pretty good prices and free shipping on all the parts you're looking for. Also, automic has a $10 off deal for evo members. I know $10 seems small in light of the $700 worth of parts you are about to order, but hey, 10 bucks is 10 bucks. :beer:

(Also, if you feel like a road trip, swing by baton rouge and we'll install them for free and it will give us another excuse for a get together/cookout/mod party )

Yeah, I just heard a list of parts from Chrissy that needs to, or will be needing to, go on her car as well. Sounds like if I did take a trip up there I would be spending all my time wrenching and no time in the strip clubs.

Now....drive your *** down here for a few days and we'll install them here...and you and mikey can finally have that alone time y'all have so desperately needed.

naaa, come up for a weekend. I'm not "useless"... just haven't ever done it before. I'm debating waiting to get Tokico's anyway so I can lower it properly the first time.

Don't say that too loud, it will give Chrissy more ammo to get me up there.

I guess we should end the though....
