I really like those gills you have. I was looking at them awhile ago but I read reviews that they faded from top to bottom not side to side yet every picture I see of them they fade side from side.

Just noticed your pic of the gills looks exactly like the one that is from the SLP website about the faded gills. Do they actually really fade

Looks really good I have the eibach sport springs but I'm thinking of changing those hollow sway bars with solid eibach ones ,how much difference did you feel in the handling after the susp. Upgrade?

I've seen the 'SLP' ones up close and I like the ones I had better.(...and they're cheaper too!)
I bought them from 'BMC Extreme Customs'.

I decided to start upgrading my suspension before I add any more horsepower.
Horsepower mean nothing if you can't get the rear end to hook-up to the ground.
The difference in handling is like night and day. I only bought the rear bar because I like Drag Racing. For cornering they recommend to use the 32mm front sway bar due to the stiffness of the competition rear sway bar.

But everyone says the BMC ones are not like the picture that they don't fade from side to side just top to bottom among other problems like not being a good fit. I just want to know your honest opinion about them.

They look just like the picture on their website.

Ok, no problems installing the 'Trailing Arms' and the 'Sway Bar'. The passenger side 'Toe Link' no a problem. The driver side? ...a whole different story there. They don't tell you that you have to loose the Rear Cradle bolts to be able to get the top srew out!!!! Now, the stability control light came on and I don't have a clue why...

Car looks sick, man! I have a question...

jlugo, how has the splitter held up to the elements? Any fading, cracking, etc? I'm getting the Ohio Speed rear diffuser and it comes in primer and I will be using the duplicolor bumper paint to paint it as well. I'm a little worried about UV resistance, though I've heard nothing bad about the paint in that regard.

Thanks!
I'm having problems with rock chips and I also scraped it a couple times.
But is holding good, one good thing about this paint is that you can do touch ups and it dries evenly.

Ah, okay. Well those problems I don't think you could avoid regardless of what you're painting with! I won't be dealing with rock chips nearly as much on the rear diffuser. It's just good to know it hasn't faded up on you yet.
