Yeah....I did that the first time when I changed the struts, sway bar, lateral links, and trailing arms, but the shop couldn't get the rear end to align within specs for some reason. I'll probably use a different shop or the dealer this time around after doing the rear disc brake upgrade.

I should have everything I need in order to finish the job now.

I missed that too, but fortunately the cables I ordered are from AC Delco.

I think I may have the installation done tomorrow. If not tomorrow than it should be done by Friday for sure. I aleready installed the PFYC Strut Braces. I'm currently just installing the rear disc brakes with the stainless steel lines and installing the front and rear PFYC Sway Bars. I really hope I have enough time to get the job done tomorrow.

No...it's stock height. Cars will easily bottom out on our driveway at normal ride height, so lowering the GA even more would cause many problems for sure.

Have you installed the front sway bar yet? If not then you're in for a real treat!

I have the same issue with my Cutlass... they told me that my bolts have to be cut. IDK why. I went to another place and they got it almost aligned... it's off in the rear by 0.001

I say just make sure all the bolts and stuff is the same.
