I'm going to change out the suspension to my brothers 1996 SS this weekend. His stock setup is shot and I wanna go to an aftermarket setup. Is there someone that makes a really nice kit that has everything in it - larger diameter sways, new shocks springs bolts bushings and any other hardware that is available.

I don't need anything crazy like triple adjustable springs, just sometthing that is valved nicely for the car and gives it a better ride over stock for street driving only - no track.

Is there someone (preferableonline retailer) that sells a complete kit ?? Thanks in advance guys.

Only "complete kit" (so to speak) would be buying the Hotchkis swaybars, springs, and rear control arms. You still need to get shocks though, the Bilstein 1104/0929 shocks should work fine.

You'll be pressed to get it all by THIS weekend without paying astronomical shipping and/or local prices though......probably should plan ahead a bit, as it would save you some serious coin here!

IMO, the hotchkis springs and bilstein sport shocks(1104/0929) are the best as far as ride quality, handling, and stance.(hotchkis springs are 1.5" front, 1" rear drop). Hotchkis also makes a front/rear sway bar set to go with the springs that are nice....check out the GP section, there is a sale on all hotchkis parts......

I am running the Hotchkis setup (springs, sways, lca's). I also have the 1104/0929 Bilstiens. I recommend the setup.

I would also recommend doing more research with the search feature and spending a little time on this. That way you know what options you have.

Hope to help.
