Monroe Severe Service shocks...can't believe the instant difference.

Oh, and jumping from 15 to 17 inch wheels is huge too. - JM.

Well I already have the impala 17's on it so im good there. I dont want to lower the car too much (i know i cant have both) I want to find a happy middle ground. It doesnt have to be the best but i dont want it to feel like a total land boat.

Everything stock except for Torsen T2, ZQ8s, Airlifts, Monroe SS shocks, and Spindle Extenders. The car is almost neutral and retains the comfy ride of a stocker. I need one more thing to complete it and make the spindle extenders a little more digestable, and that is a tubular upper A-Arm with a different mount angle.

I've got extensive posts on everything I've mentioned.

If it's helpful to you, I have what some would call the vintage Herb Adams rear bar, F-body front bar (by performance parts warehouse) setup. What further enhances the handling is the above listed in conjuction with the GM body bushing mod, Bilstein shocks (0929 & 1104), Metco rear lower control arms, 9C1 heavy duty springs all the way around and air bags in the rear by Airlift. I also have the front A-Arm mod with the 5/8 ball joints. I found this mod extremely helpful considering the streets of New York are pretty sh***y. The end result is an extremely confident handle without loss of comfort. Many praises to Scott for this mod, I followed it to the letter and I'm very happy.
