New Cobalt Owner Checking in

Figured id introduce myself and the new ride.. Now im no stranger to cars or to modifying them but i never got into gm's in general till now. So for the most part this car will be a new learning experience for me. So far from what ive been reading everything should be pretty straightforward for me.

Now the car is my wifes and most of everything that will get done to it is coming from her. Anyways the car is an 09 Cobalt 2LT 4 door in white. has 34k on it and has 5x110 wheels, cruise, tilt, keyless, 4 wheel abs, traction control, 2.2 Lap motor, auto trans.

Now so far already we have picked up a few goodies to put into the car and are currently working on other parts. What we have so far to install on it are an ss/sc cat back exhaust, ss/sc front calipers, ss/sc rotors, ss/sc rear axle beam complete with disc brakes, ebrake cables/ect, ss gauge face overlay, led dome lights, led trunk light, led license plate lights, 6 k hid kit(temp till i build her retrofits), 2 ss head lights that are being retro fitted with fx35 bi-xenon projectors, ss front bumper, g5 gt spoiler.

We are planning to put the full ss lip kit on the car along with ss/tc 18" wheels to complete the outside look. Inside will be close to stock with just tint, remote start, and some audio goodies. Suspension we plan to drop it on ssc or pedders springs and add a f&r sway bar set. down the long road will be coilovers. Engine will be left alone other then ss/sc catback, k&n intake setup and color matching with polished letters valve cover. Should make a nice little daily for her that she(& I) can be proud of.

Right now only few questions i have on the car are, with adding the rear discs and ss fronts do i need the ss master cylinder? I know with my 98 neon when i do rear discs you need the master cylinder. next the car has traction control but no switch to turn it off. Am i able to add the traction control off switch from the new ss/tc's or other gm vehicles to the car to be able to turn it off?

And lastly just to give you guys an idea of what ive done in the past here are a few of our cars we have had and i built.

Hopefully ill meet some good ppl along the way on this site and other cobalt forums. Gain some knowledge and be able to share it as well like i have in the past on my other forums.

Her taurus that we parted out to stock and traded in for the Cobalt



My Gti/Jti that i parted out to stock and sold



My Ranger I parted out to stock and sold (for the gti)


My Current dd. 98 neon Coupe with 2.4 swap, 3.94 trans(mods in sign)







NOW onto the Cobalt (day we brought it home)








Led dome and trunk lights



Few of the ss parts at a buddies house. scored everything here plus the 2 headlights and ss gauge cluster from a local u pull it yard for $140.


09 Cobalt 2LT. 6k hids, led dome/trunk lights, SS F&R brakes, SS gauge faces, SS cat back, SS bumper, SS spoiler, 18" SS/TC wheels, waiting to go on soon
98 Neon, 2.4 swap, 2.0 cams, b.s delete, u.d.p, header, full 2.5 exhaust, semi-tucked engine bay, k sports coilovers, acr rack, acr sways, vibrant bars, boogers, srt seats/shifter/pedals, 2gn steering wheel/console/brakes/snowflakes, chin spoiler, full prothane bushing set, depo's, pg lsd, 3.94 2gn acr trans swap
