I got my shocks already and found out that my car had koni's on it and they were not blown...it was just a bad bushing All well I put on my new ones and the ride is much softer than the koni's....Install was a breez and did not take too long...I'm going to either keep the konis and clean them up or just sell them. The car is not a 12 sec drag car so the new ones will do just fine and its better for a dd.. I got my cat-back just a few hours ago and am going to my gf's house to install it aspa. Wish me luck, and working on this car is soooo easy... One thing is good news tho my car already had after market lower control arms on it and I had no idea....I think it also has ford racing uppers I will check it when im doing the cat back....maybe this is why I rapped the gto off the line? I'm not sure about gearing though but when rotating the tire one full turn the drive shaft rotated 1 3/4 turns?
