BronxxBombers213's 2010 2SS/RS

Wish I started this up sooner, but better late than never. I bought the car on 3/2/12 with 4300 miles on the clock.

I was ONLY looking for a 2SS/RS that not only had the factory ground effects, but they had to be painted body color, so it did take me a while. I really wanted ABM, but with how particular I wanted it, it was nearly impossible to find. There was one that I found on auto trader that sold about a month before I was ready to buy. Also in the running was SW with black stripes and SIM with black stripes. Found this one, and couldnt pass it up. Drove down from NYC to Virginia to pick up the car.

Here's when I picked it up !

Your car looks great !

I was just wondering 2 things...How much drop are the new Pfadt's and do you know if they've got a Staggered setup of those sweet wheels available? (I'm searching for some specs on them right now!)

I just got my car last nite and am anxious to get started on the look I want and I'm also hoping for some good deals on Black Friday !

thanks!!! I think its 1.25" drop... And yes, they are available staggered. They come in various offsets in 8.5", 10, and 10.5.

If youre set on going staggered, I would probably go with 10front and 10.5 rear, so you still get some good concavity up front. The 8.5's have flat faces, and IMO not as aggressive looking.

welllllll...finally got the AAC concept style mirrors.. but sent them back for a refund... while they did look great, I am a perfectionist... I didnt like the quality of the paint, the lack of range of motion for the glass, and the whistling at 45mph+







but anyway, the past few weeks along with black friday sales = a very happy car but a very unhappy bank account... lots of projects for me to tackle now


I purchased:

27mm front 32mm rear Pedders Sways/ Endlinks
Pedders Subframe bushing inserts
Pedders Radius Rod bushing inserts
Pedders Steering Rack bushing
Pedders stainless braided brake lines
Dimpled/ Slotted Rotors
RX catch can
Color Matched XM antenna
Hood spears from thecamarodecalstore
GM Locking Gas cap (not the door)
HUD retrofit from ofer
Parts needed for the ABL dashboard
Jacfab front plate bracket
Solo HFC's

Man, blacking out the turn signals makes the car look a ton wider in the front, really shows off the grille going all the way from one headlight to the other.

And your stance is awesome, its gonna make me get those springs.
