i also had the windows tinted down here in florida even though the car will sit most of it life in a garag with its other siblings :). but i went with a Nano ceramic tint including the front windshield to protect the dashboard which is in in great shape.

added some rear suspension parts. rear sway bar end links and rear pitman arms i thinks that what they call them.
next will be rear:(rear diff mounts, sway bar bushings, rear trailing arms bushings, and rear sub-frame bushings). stay tuned.

these were not that bad. there is a few good DIY video's on how to replace them. very easy job imo.

Amazing thread, if you do remove the SLS, message me, I may be a buyer. I have koni yellows and h&r’s and I’m in the opposite boat, I’d like a softer ride.
