  1. Amanita stickers

    Recently I designed a few stickers advertising the w-body forums and I have a batch I'm ready to sell. Here are the stickers I have and my current inventory Black text: 3 in stock. $3 each or 2 for $5 6 inches wide White text: 3 in stock. $3 each or 2 for $5 6 inches wide Oval sticker: 5 in stock. $8 each 6 x 4 in I can make more batches of these if there's interest, but I can't promise it will be any time soon. If you'd like one send me a pm and I can get them mailed out ASAP.

    Another red 90 TGP

    Oh trust me I know. The SE needs to be repainted some time in the future and I'll be fighting myself between keeping it black and painting it some other color I think would look good on it like Gunmetal, a really dark blue, or British Racing Green.

    Yeah if I were to get a turbo it would be a black one with grey cloth. CD and moonroof don't matter much to me.

    poor thing looks like it has had a rough life. I hope somebody saves it but in that shape it doesn't seem likely.

    Front suspension fail

    Wow, Good job! Glad to see you got it working again, no doubt most people would've sent it straight to the scrapyard after that sort of accident.

    New to the site!

    I need to find a HUD for my '96. My 98 has it and I love it. Does the '97-03 HUD fit my '96 or do I specifically need to get one from a 5th gen Grand Prix?

    Z34 swag

    Now I want to look for grand prix posters
  8. Thanks for letting me know, Maybe I'd be better off then sticking to the leaf spring in the back.
  9. When you get the swap done, can you tell me how well it handles compared to beforehand with the monoleaf? While it would be loads more convenient to raise/lower the car with coil-overs, since I want to autocross mine I'm wondering if it could possibly be a downgrade to give it those in the rear instead of ordering a custom leaf spring.

    Junk Yard Thread, Never ending

    I saw a white Grand Prix that looked a lot like that one on the road today, brings the amount of 5th gen GPs in my area that I know of up to 5 including mine.
  11. I'm looking at getting some new KYB struts for the rear soon (part number is 236003), I'd be able to use those with these mounts right? I'd hate to have to buy a new set in order to use them. Also I'm looking forward to seeing the results of that swap, good luck!
  12. I'd like to get a set for the front in the future. How have those treated you? Do you have a parts list for what you used?
  13. Could you specifically take plenty of pictures with how they are mounted to the strut towers? I'm strongly considering giving the rear of my 96 Coil Overs and I want to make sure I get that absolutely right.
  14. I'm looking to upgrade the suspension for my '96 Grand Prix and I'm not sure where I should start. Are there any parts that should be upgraded before I consider anything else? Additionally, I've seen all the posts about different ways to give 1st gen w bodies coil overs but I'm not sure what would be the least headache-inducing. Any advice is appreciated, this is my first project and what I'm really learning to work on cars with.
  15. Thanks! I wet sanded the front one today, going to try and paint it tomorrow if its warm enough. Its FE3, I made sure to check that before I went to pick them up this morning.
  16. Just got back from the junkyard with these, they came out of a '96 Monte Carlo z34. Now I need to order some new end links/poly bushings and sand the rust off/repaint them. Yeah, it has FE3 springs, don't all '96 Grand Prix coupes since they were all sport packages that year?

    9C3 Recaro seats

    I think that's a Foxbody Mustang, center console and automatic shifter look the same.
  18. Good idea, I'll take one with me. Is there anything else I should take off it while I have the chance?
  19. Turns out there's a place only 20 minutes from me with z34 sway bars and they are open on Saturdays. I'm going to stop by there tomorrow and see what shape they are in.
  20. With the strut bars sorted out now I'm probably going to go with upgrading the sway bars next. Do the Monte Carlo Z34s with the 3800 have the same size rear sway bar as the 1995-1997 models? Is their front sway bar also bigger than other models that came with the LQ1? Either way, I'm going to be looking out for Monte Carlos in junkyards near me, I know of one but it isn't a z34. When I come across one what other parts should I take from it?
  21. I'm actually about to get one of those along with a 34mm front sway bar from @GTP091, but thank you for the offer!
  22. I was also looking at these Pirellis, but I think if I want to use tires as nice as those it would be worthwhile to get wider wheels first. Also, what size is my front sway bar? It's a 1996 Grand Prix SE. I saw GTP091 had some 34mm sway bars from '92 grand prixs listed for sale a few months ago and was wondering if those are bigger than the stock one I currently have in case he has one left.
  23. For tires I was looking at getting these in a few months. They aren't the best but they should be good enough for what I want to do.
  24. Do you have any pictures of it on your car? I might be interested, was it from a 3.4 or 3.1 model?
  25. What models/trims could come with a factory front strut bar? I might do some digging in my area and see if I can come across one.
