This ONLY assuming you do all your own work and don't mind being stranded anywhere at inopportune times.

I'm not saying stock replacement parts are half-assed. But if you have the opportunity to replace them with better than OEM then why not do it? I guess I just don't understand your logic.

Mods: Shark Injected | Magnaflow Exhaust + Resonator | H&R Springs | Bilstein SP Shocks + Struts | TMS Power Pulleys
Eibach F+R Sways | BeastPower Brackets | M-Tech bumpers | Predator ICE V3 + HID Fogs | Eurodyne CF Hood | BSW Sub + Dice + spec dock
