NEED SOME OPNIONS

so i need to replace my shocks and struts so while im doing this im thinking of getting stainless steel brake lines,drilled slotted rotors,semi metallic brake pads, bushings,and painting the control arms and sway bars and any thing else holding my suspension together. Now my question is should i even waist money getting a camber kit i mean my wheels arent bending out at all and i can fit two fingers between the fernder and wheels so should i even waist the money. Also does anyone have any pics of there under carriage painted black or any color for that matter im just wondering if it would look good. and if anyone has any other ideas im open for suggestions.

Re: NEED SOME OPNIONS

I think you would find an answer to your question after you install this all and drive it around and go through your first set of tires. Keep an eye on the wear and tear throughout the lifespan to recognize trouble spots, then look at the tires when you're going to get a new set to see if they've worn unevenly or not. After all, it's just one set of tires.

Re: NEED SOME OPNIONS

what do you plan on doing for springs/coil overs. How much of a drop are you wanting?

I would serious suggest making this a weekend project. Its gonna be easier to put all the sh!t back together and in, if you do it all at once. After you do put everything in...get an alignment.
