    Yea it really is. Sad thing is that is with the crappy bulbs that the lights come with. You don't really realize how bad the factory ones are until you see what they can be like with some decent housings. I even think it looks better too.

    Yeash as have I. I love the fact that they look factory. I'm not a flashy person so they're perfect. Now I just need to find something to update the fog lights, but the new set of headers are next.

    hmmmmmm

    They use a 880 bulb while ours are a 885 bulb. Not sure if the plugs would be the same, but it would be pretty easy to swap. Only tough part would be mounting it.

    Well got some crap done today and found out something pretty funny. I have had these 98+ knuckles for quite some time now, but finally decided to put them in. Went pretty easy except for I forgot about the whole 98+ brake hose not fitting issue. I used the stocker 93-97 hoses, but will be getting c5 brake hoses this Thursday. I also found that my upper control arm bushing are pretty much none existent. Gonna pick up some Moog bushing on Thursday as well. I guess I'll also do a how to for this later on as well although I didn't have my camera with me.





    Very very happy with this one. These brakes are soooo much better than the earlier ones. Also even though they are larger the full assembly seems lighter.

    I put some new upper control arms in my car yesterday although I really didn't have the funds for them I'm quite happy with them. I was originally just going to just press in new bushings but that turned out to be a complete failure, so I went down to Spohn and picked up some new uppers. I'll eventually buy the lower ones, but no money for them at the moment.


    Sadly that was how my car sat for almost a week while waiting on stuff.


    Once I realized that the old upper arms were a no go I took the red Camaro down to Spohn to pick up some new ones.





    It was pretty funny though after all week driving the red Camaro I went back to mine and thought it was down on power, how quick we get used to things. That car is so much quicker than mine, but I forgot just how much better handling of a car mine is versus the other ones in the family.

    I'm throwing these two pics up for the only reason that I can think of, I like them:

    As it sits right now the red Camaro will run very low 13s high 12s @ 105ish mph, so yeash its considerably faster. In the 1/4 it has me by 2 seconds and 17 mph. That being said I still like mine better.
