    Bill,
    It sounds like you have a lot of stuff "waiting to go on" your car.
    I hope all those pieces net you some "improvements" rather than just extra work

    I'm certain that the T56 will be an improvement worth the extra work. So will the SS steering box.

    What else you got to install Bill?

    You know.....I was planning on installing some aftermarket Impala SS springs so it would be lower but just the OEM Impala SS springs would lower my car. I am changing all the bushings on the front and installing a SS sway bar for both ends. What do you guys suggest on the springs? I was planning on some KYB soft shocks, but after hearing what you guys been saying maybe I should go to a stiffer shock.

    I'v heard the same thing about the springs. I had the same thing happen to me also. I tried afetrmarket SS springs and it actually RAISED the car. Go figure! I ended up using some springs that I hand-picked and they are GREAT. Soft ride and just the right ride height.

    I have the SS springs and bars on mine with the stiff bilsteins. I love the way it rides and handles.

    More from the "have waiting to install list": BMR LCA's also.
