Hello everyone
I drive a 2008 black V6 with a few basic bolt ons and a few appearance mods. About to get the 2013 gt500 wheels 18x9 in black on some nitto nt555 tires. Not sure where to go after that but would love some direction, I'm thinking drivetrain or suspension? Any suggestions or reviews on products would be great. Mods right now:
C&L cold air intake
Airaid Throttle Body Spacer
Chrome Alternator (replaced broken factory)
Bama 87 Performance tune w/ the Diablosort Trinity T-1000
BBK catted x-pipe
Magnaflow axel back
GT style grille w/ halos

Texas22,

Welcome! Post up some pictures so we can see what you're working with! I usually say this to everyone but find something that you don't like about the car right now and go from there! We definitely have some recommendations for you though! I'll always go back and forth between drivetrain and suspension but I think overhauls the 05-09's Suspension is the best thing that we can do for our cars! If you're looking to throw some Lowering Springs on it's a really great idea to get a new Struts and Shocks because if you're doing one without the other it could not only give the car an awful ride but it's going to make you confident when you're pushing it through the twistys! Another important thing to note that I wish everyone knew is if you're going to lower any car it's really important to pick up either Caster Camber Plates or a set of GT500 Strut Mounts so you're not experiencing uneven tire wear. They're also going to keep your suspension geometry in check as well! I hope some of this helps! Let me know if you have any questions and I'm here to help!

Alex

Awesome! Between the strut mounts and camber plates what is a better option? Also what kind of prices am I going to be seeing with these when I decide to buy them on AM?

Sorry about the delay I was offsite yesterday! As per the pricing shoot me a PM and I'll see what I can do. I've run both on my car and I think that the Caster Camber Plates are going to be a lot more heavy duty. If you're lowering the car, they're a great idea to not only keep your suspension geometry in check but to also prevent any type of premature tire wear from occurring! Hope this helps!
