I'll also give a big big second on the Dick Miller Racing brace!! Worth every penny!

For that kind of HP I would also get a pair of aftermarket upper rear control arms. Like BMR, UMI or Currie. A match set of upper and lowers would be best.

Please give some thought about strengthening the chassis, like set of fresh new body mounts like the kind that are in the 9C1 Police Package and 9C6 Taxi. Which both had additional body mounts in their chassis but were left out of the WX3 Impala SS. And not to mention boxing the C channels on the perimeter frame extra torsional strength.

1995 9C1, 3.73 gears, TruTrac LSD, Hellwig front swaybar, B-Body Performance 1.25" rear bar, Currie rear upper & lower control arms, Dick Miller Racing rear brace, Vogtland springs, "Sport" Bilstein shocks, CIA Cold Air Intake, PCMFORLESS program, S10 torque converter and Performance rebuilt 4L60E w/Art Carr sunshell, HD 1-2 band & Raybestos Z-Pak 3-4 clutches. Harper's HD12 front brake, Techna Fit braided steel brake lines & Stealth Bolt Mod. 12 way front Bonnie seats & rear Bonnie seats.
