Agreed, equivalent or better parts would equate to aftermarket Subframe Bushings, Sway Bars, End Links, and Coilovers. You would definitely pay more than $1500 for all that stuff. But then again.....it would be better stuff too, especially the coilovers!!!! A big chunk of what you're paying for in the 1LE kit are those new struts/shocks. How good are they, or how much of a difference are they going to make on an SS? I can't really say, but I am pretty certain that a pair of adjustable coilovers would be a lot better!!!
