Thank you for the input, especially MSDoll, and Roberto, for asking the REALLY tuff questions!

OK, in short, I want to make my car look better.
I have...something along the lines of Monroes front and back, less than a year old.
Nevermind how they got there.
The car is a salvage title, but I know, and can live with the reason why.

MSD, you are taking me to task, and making me really think what I want.
Yes, I want the car to look good, but I do drive very hard, and I know the car is capable of handling MUCH better.
As part of the drop, I will replace the sway bushings and links, and now I should obviously change the shocks to a better brand.
Damn, I just wanted to drop it a bit, but common sense tells me to spend the 2k, and have a virtual new car.
I will look forward to your advice.

I have 150k on the clock, and it is as spirited as can be.
19MPG, which is identical to the window sticker.
It took a hit to the a$$ end, and that is the reason for the ST.
If you search "pound puppy" you can see what a great looking car it is.

Thanks again.
MSD and all, thank you for the time you have spent on this.
Sled, it's good to see how well the "Anger Management" classes are working.
I appreciate your posts!
