gmparts direct is a little confusing. Apparantly the toe rod is different on the V6 if you have the RS package; so there is some differences between RS and non-RS. Mine is non RS so in the pic below you can see the toe rod I have. The toe rod used for RS doesn't show, but would assume it's a bit stronger or stiffer bushings to support 20" tires. Mine came with 18"s but I put 20"s on. May be time to upgrade!

Me thinks so....see, you don't really realize all you get with that RS pkg. People think it's overpriced, but maybe all those extras are worth it!

Not at all! Piecing the RS package together is some $$$. I just didn't like stock spoiler and I think the black roof ditch molding contrasting with Silver looks great.

I'm looking at BMR toe links right now.

Cool! I've bookmarked the airbag removal thread and the wheel is held on with a torx bolt. No puller needed! Just swapping out the cruise/radio controls and the trim

No water or fogging in them. Don't know what's going on with these things!

This sucks you guys have to go through this. Jonathan usually makes things right though.

Did either of you have any paint problems with the sidemarkers as well? Checked mine for that too and they seem fine. Silver does hide little imperfections though.

I'm going to wait until September for this mod. Getting some quotes now.

I like the shape. I'm a 10 and 2 guy for the most part, with 8 and 4 for turns. This wheel accomodates both positions. Glad to see the SST is getting closer!
