Want some new struts? What brand springs to buy? How much camber to run? What brake pads? What's the best setup for your situation....

Can you be more specific about what part it is that you're thinking about ordering and from where?

I've got one on my car.  Can't tell you how much they help as I installed new suspension at the same time.  I've got a used one, though, if you want it.  Think I paid $8 for it, so $8 + actual shipping cost if you're interested.  I can get a picture of mine installed tomorrow. :;):

That is a factory piece on the GTZ.  It must help or GM would not have put it on there.

If your car has a 4T60E transmission it will not fit correctly and will hit on the tranny pan.

Yeah I've got an extremely beefed up version, but its not currently installed I dont think.  I should actually check that.

I wouldnt buy it new.  Check cavaliers at the JY.  Different years came with them stock.
