Questions About Lt-ss Swap

hey all happy hang over from st.patty's ...so anyway i got the idea that i want to take my 06 lt 2.2. put on the strut towers, sway bar and control arm from ss to have better control and stabillity. My questions are does everyhting bolt up? and is haveing the 5-bolt pattern a better option, considering i plan on boring,camming and m62 n this *****...along with other mods of course.will 4 bolt hold up to the power?and will the drive axels need to be swapped? and help or better ideas would be awesome thanks.kyle

Everything will bolt up, but i don't see it worth it just to have the 5 bolt lug pattern.

I would just stick with the SS FE5 control arms, FE5 front sway bar, OTTP Rear sway bar, and T/C shocks/struts.

4 bolt will handle the power.

I would assume most of the ss stuff bolts right in.

most but not all, 4x100 bolt pattern is fine, and you'll need blower cams if you wanna install them in a supercharged 2.2, what year is your car?

Not necessarily does it matter what year. I would try to stick with a new SS for the control arms and sway bar. For the T/C shocks and struts I would suggest getting those brand new, because I highly doubt you will find a T/C in a Junkyard. Check these guys out for the shocks/struts

When putting on the front sway bar, you will need different bushings.. Te only bushings that will work are the ones from the 05 SS. You can use any year bar, but you will need bushings from an 05

The reason for this is that all Ls's and LT's use a 1 bolt/1 slot clamp (as do the 05 SS's) but in 06 they redesigned them to a 2 bolt design that has ribs in the bushing.
