Got The Wifes Car!!

Hey all, just trying to find a good site to learn some info on my wifes 2006 cobalt 2.2l coupe.

I myself drive a 2007 Corolla, and a member of 9thgencorolla.com, and ive found some very helpful info there about my car, so i thought i would do the same for hers.

Now she wont let me get to crazy with it (turbo/supercharger) but she is wanting a few things....

Lowering springs (the ass sticks up way to high) (dont want a slam though)
Window tint
New muffler (more for looks, not sound, that stock muffler is an eye sore)
CAI
Tail lights (she has a purple cobalt, so maybe some clear tails with purple backing)

That will get me started for now, im not looking for cheap quality stuff, i would prefer to use aftermarket GM parts if possible,(dont know if they even make them) i just know for my corolla, they have Toyota Racing Development (TRD) and they make sport springs, mufflers, brakes CAI...... so if chevy has a similar line up, then point me in the right direction.

You hit the perfect site for ALL of those answers. Go to search and type in exhaust or springs or whatever else you want. That's what I did and am VERY happy with the outcomes and help from all the users in this group.

For lowering springs that don't drop it too much, I recommend Eibach Pro-kit. You'll get a nice firm ride and a little lower. I have the Sportlines. They drop it 2" front and 2.5" rear, but don't have the firmness that the Pro-kit has. There are a lot of other brands of springs available...nothing from GMPP that I know of though. You can always install the SS/SC factory springs if you want...a lot of people do that and it's cheaper.

Exhaust there are many options as well...if you want to stick with GM aftermarket, go with the GMPP Touring for a more quiet exhaust.

You can get a GMPP short ram intake, but no CAI by GMPP. You will have to get AEM or Injen for that.

There are a few options for tail lights, not what you are looking for, but you can always spray tint them with Nite-Shades by VHT.

Welcome! Honestly even the lowest set of lowering spring don't slam it. The cobalt can take a pretty healthy drop and look like it SHOULD from the factory..
