I have a few questions.......I am about to send the bird to the shop to install:

Tokico's all the way around
ST Lowering Springs
Upper Control Arm

Is there anything else I need before I install these, I need all the help I can get!

I already know about the new alignment settings....

Is there anything worthwhile suspension performance wise to do while I'm at it?

Thanks

the end links are what connect the front suspension to the sway bar, if your lowered i read somewhere that you have to get some shorter ones since our endlinks pivot, hth, later'z.......:D

dude, you can pickup endlinks at any parts store.

Sway bar endlinks.

Check your bushings to make sure you even need them before you shell out the cash.

I like to buy new spring rubbers (isolators). And make sure you coat them with lithium grease to keep mr. squeek away.

It has nothing to do with endlink wear...It has to do with the Addco endlinks being shorter and compensating for the 1.5" drop. The stocks are 5" and the addco's are 3.5"

If you don't replace them the ends of the sway bar will be pointing upwards...the shorter endlinks bring the bar back down parallel with the ground. They're not that expensive $20 I think if I remember correctly. Pep Boys where I live had them.

Here's the site with the endlinks... You'll need part #008

I bought some ST lowering springs, but haven't put them on yet. Tell me how they ride and if you would recommend them after you get them on.

Thanks,

William
