Nice. Though my advice would be to change the links to the manufacturer's pages. No reason to link to non-sponsors and prices fluctuate, not worth listing them.

You can get the Monroe strut mounts on rockauto.com for less, but I'd suggest buying them from your local Advance Auto, about the same price as ZZP but its local and they have a lifetime warranty.

Rockauto also sells the OEM ACDELCO strut mounts.

The pogo washers can be picked up at your local dealer, or dirt cheap at a junkyard. They're just the cradle cups on the front bolts on every W-Body made in the last 10+ years. I got like 3 full sets for free at the junkyard. Laughing Part number 10203412.

Sway Bar Part Numbers
12498643 GMPP/9C1/7B3 Front Sway Bar 34mm Kit
10404184 GMPP/9C1/7B3 Front Sway Bar 34mm
12498642 GMPP/9C1/7B3 Rear Sway Bar 19mm Kit
10274610 GMPP/9C1/7B3 Rear Sway Bar 19mm

Wow no love at all for the guy that sells more strut brackets and braces here than anyone else. Sad I also happen to be a paying vendor here and my brackets don't make the hood bulge.

My bad for not including you, it was nothing personal Crying or Very sad... I am kind of surprised it took you this long to find this sticky but I’m glad you did for the good of the site
