depends on what you're looking for. Some people want a smoother ride, some want stiffer, some want less body roll, some want a combination of all

The parts yes, GMPD no. It takes them forever to ship parts and they over charge for shipping. See if ZSPOT can still get the sway bars.

I think ZZP has a kit on GR2 struts for around $1200? $1500ish if you upgrade to AGX struts.

Uh,yeah...I think I'll be holdin' off on that one for a while. Rolling Eyes

I'm gonna be in the process of the juggling/doing the exhaust thing while tackling the suspension thing simultaneously...or chipping away at both the best I can.

But/and that's what you guys are here for,thank goodness.

Very Happy

GMPP sways are thicker and stiffer. Everything you always wanted to be.
