New Parts!

Just ordered some new parts for my car. Got some BBR Lower Control Arms, Steeda ultimate sway bar kit, Silverhorse racing black billet fuel door, Roush 3 piece rear wing, and a prepainted OE style hood scoop. Cannot wait for them to get here.

If they squeak then you need to grease them.

I have just the rear on now and I can tell a big difference it's set on the middle setting right now. But the rear is a lot tighter.

The rear sway bar is not too difficult you have to reverse the lower bolt on the top of the panhard bar for clearance of the connector rod. Have not done the front yet but something tells me it is going to be a pain.

Guy made a video for it and it took him an hour. I'm interested in sway bars as well. Just a pain to install

Got everything put on. But the hood scoop has bubbles in the paint and is not laying perfect. I bought it prepainted from American muscle does anyone know who I need to talk to at American muscle about this?

Looks sweet man, very nice! I'd just call or email AM , I'm sure they'll send you a new one. They have great customer service! Had a shift knob that wasn't fitting right once and they sent me a brand new one! Didn't even have to go through the hassle of mailing the defective one back.

I just really hope a $300 hood scoop does not turn into a $1200 mistake. (New hood and paint)
