Glad to see we here in Buffalo aren't the only ones to suffer from lake effect!

You guys got hammered this year too, didn't you? Obviously we need to consume more fossil fuels to reduce our snow fall.

To the OP, FOUDATION! Start with subframe inserts and radious rod inserts. Both can be purchased from any of these fine vendors above! Then move on to sways and end links. From there it depends on your intentions to race or not. With these foundational mods the car will respond well with the lowering springs! Strut tower bracing will help if your racing or really getting aggressive on the street. Most install strut braces for the looks alone and really never drive the car to the point of actually benefitting from them!

Blackouts: I removed my bezels and painted them myself with satin black paint made for plastic surfaces. Can be purchased at any auto parts store. Check out any of the graphics vendors here for black out vinyl pieces. Best way to do the calipers is to remove and have powdercoated but you can also use caliper paint. Again do a search, I don't remember specific vendors but I have seen threads on the subject! Good luck and enjoy your modding!
