stay away from those ebay control arms they are china knock offs, I went with Global West upper and lower control arms and QA1 coil overs, CPP drop spindles, GW rear control arms,QA1 rear shocks, Edelbrock pinion angle adjusters, Edelbrock tie rods- the difference in handling is day and night I am very happy with how it worked out.I also put in a close ratio steering box and put front disc brakes on.

Sounds great, and I love the looks of your car, too.

I have seen mixed opinions about mixing different manufacturers when it comes to a suspension and brake components. Sometimes they don’t fit well together. Since I am on a bit of a budget, I opted for the complete CCP the package. I was hoping for a 2 inch drop all around for a more “pro touring” look and feel. It is likely that the first upgrades I do will include coil over shocks all the way around, adjustable uppers and tall ball joints. Since I get home from work before my wife does, I make sure to remove any delivered parts from the front porch at hide them in the garage. Try it, it works!

4k budget for suspension, front to back. That's about all I can justify.

Sure appreciate the link though.
SRG has some shop! It was all over for me, when I saw the "rolling chassis" package! Eric

I would not use Ridetech. I had a bad experience with them. Hotchkis suspension stuff is OK. Consider front and rear sway bars, coil-over shocks, better control arms, disc brakes and close-ratio steering box.
