Do you have to upgrade the shocks when you put lowering springs in?

$500 you have so many options.. I love your car, and it looks sick. I would start with rear window louvers, and then get some lowering springs. If you still have some left over then I'd put some light tint on it.

Do you have a shorty antenna yet?

I bought a shorty antenna for mine.....looks great...performs poorly. But i went with the 4". I think AM has an 8" that would probably work much better. Only $20!

That might help a little bit. I'm not an expert in audio. Lol It might be easier to just swap it out with a 8 inch antenna

Yea I would t take the lettering off the back, you can always put the lettering on the 3rd brake light for less than $5

Also I have the 8" antenna, the 4" has nothing but bad reviews, my 8" works great with my XM satellite radio.

GT 500 spoiler painter from American Muscle for $299 or painter chin spoiler for $325. I have the same dilemma but I think I'm gonna totally shake things up and go for the Steeda springs and Koni str t shocks for a little over $500 - Koni is having a big sale right know.

Just ordered SHR lowering springs, camber bolts, 8" antenna, SHR black gt fuel door, head light splitters, and mirror covers. Should keep me occupied for a day or two.

Supposedly, the spoiler store will paint any color they do not have listed (like legend lime) for an additional $40.
