Hey guys just picked up an 05 V with 23K mi. clear title car for just under 16k thought it seemed like a good price? It has B&B cat back exhaust, cold air intake and a Diablo sport.
I need front bumper, driver fender, and 2 wheels. Does anyone have any idea where to get these parts at a reasonable price? Also I have read a lot about the rear end being trash on these cars, what is the first thing i should do to insure i dont tear out the differential on the car ,as i am a very aggresive driver.
Is the Vette rear end swap the awnser or is there just after market parts i can bolt in to prevent it?
Sorry for the noob questions, but you gotta start some where.

I have no idea abput getting cheap parts.
As for the rear, you can't bolt in a vette piece. There is madman that makes a kit for 7k. You can buy a bmr wheel hop kit to try and limit the hop. Try not to dump the clutch or power shift and the rear will live longer.

Welcome. Ebay is probably your best bet.
