View Full Version : Suspension

03-14-2006, 01:45 AM
We'll I know I have said I want to do alot of things to my car but since my 2 front springs are broke I figured I should do my suspension first. This is what I want to do.

-Bushings (control arms, sway bar)


-Springs (front and also rear leafs)

-Front end parts while I'm at it(tie rods, idler arm, pitman arm, ball joints, ect...)

Any suggestions or anything else I'm forgetting?

I dont have like thousand's to spend on suspension and steering parts but I kind of want to do it all in one shot shere while im gonna have things apart. I just need some brands and maybe an estimate if possible of what this might all cost me. I really need to get this done this year.

Maybe a close ratio steering box? I know they are found in alot of third gen camaros and firebirds. I had one in my 88 ws6 formula. Good luck.

Just get a PST magazine and order a complete polygraphite front suspension kit $379.00 and you get everything you need its great stuff I put it on my chevelle and it handels so much better. I have like 20 of these magazines so if you want one let me know I could meet you at oscars this weekend and give you one.

yeah I looked at PST right after i posted this topic actually and for everything I want its like a grand which I dont think is bad at all.

ok well tomorrow (today) I am going to get the PST polygraphite super front suspension kit and also a sway bar through them. I guess the only thing I need after that is springs and shocks. Any suggestions on that or should I just get the PST springs and the KYB shocks through them too?

I haven't heard the greatest of things on KYB shocks. BTW, I am putting a 92 Caprice 9C1 steering box on my chevelle. This will tighten it up a bunch along with a new centerlink from pst.

pretty much the only thing im not getting with my stuff is a pitman arm and centerlink..

Called PST on lunch and the parts shipped out today. Should be here Thursday or Friday. Comming from New Jersey. Pics to come when it all gets here.

Ok here are a few pics. They suck but whatever. Got the parts this morning, went to work, came home and I got the Idler arm on and also the passenger side inner and outer tie rods on.

The tires are BFG Radial T/A's 275/60/15 in the rear and 235/60/15 in the front.


The New Rims!!!!


And the parts!
