Thanks!! I was undecided with red or black 'Brembo' decal -- glad i went with black, matches the rest. you definitely won't regret it.

A tip for you....go to your GM dealer and purchase 8 banjo washers ahead of time (2 on each caliper, always use new, they are deliberatley crushable) also when you take the brake lines off the caliper, support them upright and they won't drip (rear - top of the wheel well is a bolt - i zip tied to that - fronts zip tied to itself on the mouting brakcet) I used the old fashioned method to bleed the brakes. tried a vacuum thing unsuccesfully, 15 year old daughters come in handy sometimes - even if they don't know which is the brake pedal

The lowering was pretty easy, im hoping the rear settles down a bit more. Will go find some rumble strips in the local school. will be taking it for alignment in the next few days. I read on here to 'time' the bushes - i.e loosen the bolts, ride around the block, and then tighten...Makes sense..

Looks great. Nice job. What brake fluid type did you use when you bled the brakes? Thanks, Bob
