I would just advise you to get new Strut bearings before installing them and of course if you wanted a rear sway bar you need to have some sort of a sway bar tab welded on.
how much for pickup?
i can wait till ur back in ct if ur away at school
70 picked up, I leave for school sat. :(. I wish i was home working I have so many things left todo on the neon.

In my opinion that bedlining on that Golf looks about just as good as those chrome three spoke rims straight out of the 90s...

This leads me to believe it's a joke. At least that is what I'm hoping.

I was ok with the bedliner paint job (don't agree with it, but it's not my car), but putting on a push bar with huge flood lights on an '05 ATX Neon that does not do any sort of rallying or anything else is rediculous, and not in a good way.

Suave, I was with you when I saw that. No one in their right mind would bedline a car AND put a walmart brush guard on it. Joke.

lol projectors are on, although the halos and led's arent wired up because i didnt have a voltmeter and didnt know where to splice, and found the instruction manual modern provides untill i was finished FML

and they dont line up for shit on the body kit, but oh well

apparently the rear bumper i have isnt prepped well at all
it appears to be a cinnamon glaze bumper, that was not sanded or scuffed in the least bit, and had a coat of black primer over it, which is cracking and peeling, so im either going to have to strip it myself or buy another one, im leaning towards to first option
either way i think ill drop off the front bumper in the next few days and worry about the rear later
