My name is Sean, and I am a newbie in here.
I have 2006 Chevy Cobalt with 120,000 miles in Michigan. However, I got several issues on my Cobalt; it will cost about $2000-4000 to repair those issues. Since this is my first car, I don’t want to go for exchange or sth.
Issue Detail from firestone:
Need remove and replace alternator drive belt.
Need transmission fluid service with filter.
Remove and replace stabilizer bar.
Rear brakes with hardware and brake fluid exchange.
Remove and replace front shock and strut assemble
So now I am thinking about doing some repair and upgrade.
First, does anyone know good mechanic with fair price in Michigan (close to Ann Arbor).
Second, I am thinking about
“UNIVERSAL STARTER BASIC TURBO KIT 16PC UPGRADE CUSTOM” (UNIVERSAL STARTER BASIC TURBO KIT 16PC UPGRADE CUSTOM | eBay
K&N AIR INTAKE & CLEANER (that’s the reason that I need very nice mechanic.)
Is that a bad idea?
Third, what kind of struts, shock and brake is the good one for sport Cobalt?
I was thinking about this guy's SUSPENSION
▪ Koni Yellow Struts & Shocks (but there are several good struts on ebay too, hard to decide.)
▪ DC Sports Upper Strut Mount
▪ Progressive Rear Sway Bar
I still have a lot of questions about my cobalt, however; let’s finish these if someone can help me with it.
P.S. I am so noob about the car and this forums. If I am asking some stupid question, please feel free to laugh at me. lol~~
