I had the exact same issue you have to get a special harness to connect the factory amps. Crutchfield sells it.

Bypass directly to the speakers. Find a wiring diagram of the plug(s) that plugs into the factory amp/amps and match them up to their positive/negative counterparts on the headunit wiring harness. Just about any decent aftermarket headunit these days will sound better if you bypass the POS factory amps, even the Mach system which honestly is kinda crappy. I did this with my SVT Contour back when it was still running and the Pioneer 6x8s I put in immediately sounded better with the Pioneer headunit I had in there. Need to do this with my new 98 actually... have not even used the stereo since I've had it (not a DD) and need to figure out what speakers are in it and what the PO put in there. There is some sort of aftermarket amp in the trunk going to the speakers back there and a Bazooka sub that was in there too...

Start a new thread lol. Again, you'll have a bazillion different opinions from basic BBK lowering springs to cutting a coil off to a full out coilover kit.
