Spoiler and Head Light assemblies

I called my local Ford Dealer today to get prices on a Spoiler and Headlight Assemplies for my 95 LX.

Can someone tell me if these prices are good?

Spoiler - Primer color - 220.00
Headlight Assem. - 104.15 each.

Also... When replacing the Stock 15" wheels and Tires, Do I have to do any modifications to the suspension to go with 17" wheels and Tires? What do you guys recommend for Wheels and Tires also....

I am really excited about this forum. I finally after 7 years get the T-Bird. My wife has been driving it since we bought it in 95. We got pretty lucky. We got the 4.6L V8 because they did not have any V6's available. I have been chomping at the bit to get this car..... I a putting new Plugs and Wires on it this weekend. Just found a small Fuel Line leak today and I got bummed. She is sitting at the Dealership for 2 days to get fixed....... oh well....... Thanks Guys

Check out this link...

for spoilers....

Depending on rim offset and tire size you normally
don't have to make any changes for 17" rims and
decent size tires.

Check this link out for tire info, sizes, rim width ranges,
prices, etc:

Check out this link to see how tire size affects speedo, final
gearing, etc (compare your choices to:205/70/15 or 215/60/16
which are oem stock or optional sizes):

http://www.c5-corvette.com/tirecalc.htm

If you spend time on those two sites, you'll pick up
a lot of info....

Good luck,

As of now, I suggest Potenza RE730s. That may change as I will be getting some Yokohama "Ultra-high performance" Intermediates put on next week.
