Looking for input/advice

The time has come for the first mod(s).

Springs i say eibach (or however ya spell it). and for exhaust if ya have the time and money get long tube header, X-pipe, and whatever mufflers that u like the sound of. Remember you get what you pay for.

I would love to do a full system, but money demands I only do a axle back system right now.

Oh and I know I get what I pay for, that's why I want good quality

If you're going the delete route have a shop fab it up, 60 bucks per muffler... I had them use stock tips and stock clasp so they can be removed if I ever get sick of it. I also had the tips rotated about 45 degrees to be flush with the natural contour of the rear bumper, it looks super clean and like I said... 60 bucks a pop.

About as loud as a Harley at wot though

H&R Race Springs. Perfect drop, and don't get saggy like a lot of people complain about Eibach's.

I will agree either save for complete exhaust or just take to a muffler shop. Also look at doing GT500 mufflers with a o/r Xpipe. One the best sounding exhaust I have heard. Plus you can get the GT500 for aroudn $250 and the x pipe for 199-299.

I just ordered Heartthrob's 3" cat to axel w/H-pipe kit that costs $369. Next payday I am putting the Flowmaster American Thunder series axel-back to finish it up. I did a lot of searching on YouTube, and that was the best sounding to me. There have been some quality issues raised concerning Heartthrob's quality, but I figured that pipes are pipes, and any local shop can repair bad welds. Just my thoughts. Also, please follow up with you springs, that is next after the exhaust.

Roush Axel Backs...$379.00. The best I heard for the money besides the Borla Stinger for $850. The Roush is stainless steel and chrome plated tips. It has no highway drone and isn't really loud until 3000 rpms. IMO best bang for the buck

My muffler shop said he'd do the whole thing for $40-$50.. I went another route though..

+1 I have hushpower axle backs right now which I have no complaints about. I really like the way they sound.. BUT there is a vid on YouTube called roush vs. Hushpower vs. Gt500... All three exhaust with an o/r x pipe.. I don't have an x pipe yet but will eventually.. The gt500s are a lot deeper sounding.. More of the classic mustang sound on roids lol.. I know a lot of people like the roush but I showed that video to several diff people and everyone of them hated the roush FWIW.. I plan on getting gt500s as soon as I can unload my hushpowers on someone..

I've seen that video like 3 times lol, great comparison... I agree gt500s with the offside sound great. It also interesting that the Roush with offsides sounded like garbage but the hushpowers sounded good. The x pipe definitely changes everything
