Let The Games Begin... Suggestions please
Bottomed out the beamer last night... terrible I know... streets up here in Montreal are just UGLY... yes I'm an idiot for driving fast... once it goes bang it's just too late...
Muffler brackets broke, rear bumper shifted... I'm thinking tire moved it... anyway... I don't want to think about it...
While the car was up on the lift (it's still on the lift as of 1:30 pm eastern) had it all checked out.... no extreme damage but... see below.
Need shocks all around, coils all around, tires all around, rear bearings, inner tie-rod ends, RSMs, front control arm bushings (the big round ones that attach to the belly) entire exhaust system after manifold.
Since I need to replace these items, would any of you gentlemen have any suggestions as to EXHAUST and SUSPENSION, bushings etc. etc. options. I prefer performance before comfort if you're going to ask. Seeing as I have to change all these things may as well upgrade.
I'll be putting her away for the winter so I can do the work.
Look forward to any suggestions or previous write-ups. Thanks in advance.
