Thumbs up Changes for my Camaro...

This year the Camaro is undergoing some changes.

Getting away from the drag race setup, and more towards a handling setup for auto-cross, and occasional road racing, not to mention better daily driving manners.

New wheels & tires were received yesterday...
17x9 OEM C5 Z06 wheels, aftermarket chrome.
They're 2001 Alcoa-made wheels... lighter and thinner spoked than the 2002-04 OEM wheels.
I know those wheels are pretty common on 4th Gen F-Bodies, but it's not my fault that they look so **** sexy!
Goodyear F1 GS-D3 tires to go along.

New sway bars on the way...
BMR 32mm front, 21mm rear, with Energry Suspension bushings and endlinks.
Probably are better options out there, but for my application (most daily driving) they're perfect.

Next up:
SLP SS shocks and springs... Bilstein shocks, Eibach springs.
Should drop the car about an inch.
Having trouble locating a set so far, but still looking.

After that:
Brakes!
I have new stock calipers to install (I ground mine down to fit the drag race wheels on, and I no longer wish to use those).
Need to decide on new rotors.
I like the Baer Eradispeeds, and they can be had pretty cheap nowadays.

After that:
Flat black painted "berger panel" and strut tower brace (at the painter now)
Flat black painted calipers
....all with chrome Camaro decals

Then finally:
Re-installation of the export tail lights
Re-installaion of the audio system, with a couple upgrades:
- new head unit: Sony CDX-GT710, bought it this week
- possibly new speakers
- re-installing my JL Audio 250/1 amp and JL Audio 12W6 subwoofer

Whew, I'll be glad when this is all over.

Pics with the new wheels taken yesterday:







So far so good!

Sold off most everything already, however I have a set of ASP pulleys (alternator overdrive & crank underdrive) to sell now.
After I get new shocks on, I'll be selling the QA1 HALs (rears are alreasy spoken for).
I have a set of LCAs and a PHR to sell now too.
