The traditional Winter mod thread...

Postby Adam » Tue Nov 03, 2009 5:58 pm +00:00

It goes up every year, I haven't seen it yet, so here it is...

What mods are you planning for Winter?

Here's my list

Front & Rear Sway bars

Adjustable End links

Rear Shock tower brace

Strut Tower brace

Rear seat Delete

New Cat back (Magnaflow)

New brakes (calipers & all)

New Struts/Shocks

Cobra Nose conversion

Tinted headlight/taillights.

17x10.5's for the rear


That's about it..I think...

D, I love the NT05's.. I just wish I had more time on them.. everyone I've spoken to that has had them a while say's they get better as they get less tread.. I've only got one hill on mine.. I'm tempted to put them on for some street miles I enjoyed them so much...

Rear wheel spacers, maybe 3/8's of an inch.
