What I did this weekend.

Swapped out my old Cobalt Addiction Springs for a new set from Progress. A buddy of mine wanted my old springs for his balt so i gave them to him. My car still needs to settle for a few days so when thats complete i will post pics but here are a few that i snapped in the process. Oh and a pic of my current MPG and YC.com Sticker.



The old springs ..









I know some of the pictures are real randome but i was gonna do a How To on aftermarket spring install but am too lazy right now haha



Mod's So Far: AEM CAI, C.A. Header, 2.50 Magnaflow Catback Exhaust , ZZP Catless Downpipe, DC Carbon Strut Bar, Dropped on Progress Springs. Tinted, Fully Debadged, Custom front SS bumper,2 Audiobahn 10" w/JL amp, Lower Billett Grille, Sengen 18 x 8 rims wrapped in Capitol Sport UHP 225/40/18.

springs are mad easy! Especially the back. The hardest part is breaking the strut bolt loose, and compressing the springs is just time consuming with out air tools.

But having power under the hood is basically useless without suspention modifications. Even with springs alone you can improve your launch

Got to get that "power under the hood" to the pavement somehow.

My turbo lag is your courtesy head start.
