Worth getting SS suspension on V6?

I have seen stock SS suspension going for under $100. Is it worth swapping out? My car is my DD so I don't want to compromise the ride at all. Another option is to get adjustable sways but that is much more expensive. Any and all input is welcome

FE4 yes but if its old FE3 then no, being a 2011 youll need rear control arms and at that point you might as well go FE6

Yes, 10-11 need the 2012 lower control arms before you can put anything 2012 and up on, if you get suspension parts specifically made for 10-11 your good.

I just bought a complete set of 2010 SS struts and springs for my 2012 V6 1LT RS. Will these bolt right in?

Yep.

We have a palette full of under 20 mile take off struts t freshen up SS models on a budget or to upgrade V6s.

If you are looking for a stock style setup, I'd suggest going with the 1LE or ZL1 Sway bars. They are fairly inexpensive, but will be a huge handling upgrade; especially over the V6 bars.

Feel free to call, PM or email me with questions or pricing.

Best regards,
