I am calling this a progress thread and not a build thread as it is just that. I do not plan on making drastic changes or expensive rebuilding to make goddly amount of power that will never be able to use as this is a daily driver street car, not a race car. So I created this thread to show progress with the upgrades and daily routine maintenance that all of us do. But with some style added and some upgrades to allow for 50-75 more horsepower. As I mentioned I want this to be a street daily driver. To enjoy through the mountains and countrysides of Puerto Rico. When I bought this car back in June, and even though it has only 58k miles on the clock, this car did have repairs that needed to be attended to. The first thing on the to do list was take care of the suspension whoas and stance. As you can see from this pic, the car's front suspension was sitting on rails. The previous owner had bought lowering springs and then cut 2 coils out of each spring which caused havoc on the camber and bump stops. Not to mention distroying the inner fender well skirts. And ride performance was spine jolting. He fit the car with 20x8's with 265/45's all around. Not enough sidewall for my liking. So I went online to American Muscle and bought new SR lowering springs, and new staggered AM 17x10.5 and 17x9 black 5 spokes, with 315x35 in the rear and 275x40 up front. I further found that the lower balljoints were trashed along with the tierod ends and swaybar bushings. So I ended up replacing the bushings, tierod ends and balljoints and installing new SR caster/camber plates for proper alignment.
