Just get lowering springs and camber bolts and you will be fine and spend more than half that

As long as its not more than a 1.5' drop them I would say chamber bolts and panhard bar cuz I can almost guarantee your rear end is gna be swaying to the right. So buy springs, chamber bolts and adj panhard bar. If u wanna go even further buy new shocks n struts and some GT500 mounts

I installed it all myself. Its not hard just time consuming. Id say for everything like 200-350 depending where you go and if they include rebuilding the hats cuz at least one tends to mess up and has to be rebuilt.

I want to do this soon. I was gonna get springs, camber bolts, adjustable panhard bar, and LCAs with brackets. So since you say the the rearend will sway do you just adjust panhard To straighten out.

Thanks man that's what I thought. I would do the same thing with the bolts just to make sure it's correct. Also did you use a spring compressor for the springs.
