OP, I'm not a huge fan of the AMR wheels. I would rather get the TSW's (lighter and rotary forged) or Avant Gardes maybe RTR. I know a good dealer for those brands

I had shops near me quote 6 to 8 hours to install at 85 an hour and one shop at 105 an hour because I didn't buy the parts from him. new shocks and struts and springs and caster camber plates and panhard bar. I did it all by myself in 5 hours time total and that was with a hangup of getting stuck needing an impact gun. Which I now have.

I also had shops who wouldn't give me a set amount of time and just told me it would take as long as it would take.

The fact I did it in 5 hours, by myself and never having done it before, I will never take my car to a shop for anything. If it requires a shop install, not going on my car. I would bet I could do the whole install again in 3-4 hours given that I know exactly how everything goes now.

You have Noting to say about Suspension now. It's not my problem you like to half *** everything in life. LOL I'm surprise your not going around and just telling everyone all they have to do to lower there car is to cut the springs.

Wait a minute that is all you really need to do. That's free. That's what you must of done.
Lol. Let me guess...you've got a mustang, a mini-can, and an f-150?

I have a lot to say about suspension. Most importantly, you don't have a need for yours. Shocks and struts, springs and strut mounts are just fine for 90 percent of owners. Including you.

No need to get in a pissing contest about who has the most money here, the points are that a suspension can be made pretty darn well of $1200 I priced it out as well. Sure you could always spend 4K on coilovers, CC plates, PHB blah blah blah+ install. At the end of the day, in general the GT is an economy sports car/muscle car and a DD for most from what I have seen including myself. Dumping that much money into a 30-40K car just isn't in the budget for most of us.

Agreed. A 1200 suspension in a 5.0 is enough for what it is.
