IMO front and rear sway bar upgrade seemed to really make the car handle well, also having my strut tower braces on with the sway bars helped too. But if I had to pick between which made a bigger difference it would definitely be sway bars hands down.

The rear sway bar was pretty straight forward, but the front was a bit of a pain. Had to drop the sub frame a few inches to get the new sway bar in. Not a whole lot of wiggle room in the front. Here is a detailed thread another member made about the sway bar installation: https://www.impalaforums.com/8th-gen-...12-impala.html

The brakes were put on last week and I got them all broken in adn what a diffenece. They stop on a dime, they are quite and they are smooth! For my first time ever messing with brakes i was happy with how easy it was! couldn't be happier with them! They also look much cleaner and sportier! will get pictures soon!

Well the time has come and I have put it off as long as I could cause I have had it priced at probably 12+ places and it is always very expensive, Its time for new tires. Probably going to have it done in the next 7 days, its going to cost between $900-$1200 depending on the tire choice. Anyone else have the 18 inch rims and have any tire recomandations that are great all year round tires? Im leaning towards continential extreme contact06's.

I like your consistency on fixing up your vehicle. But I do have to agree with a couple of the guys here about the front end. And I'm not really a fan of those headlights. I'm going for the American muscle look on mine. I'll post a thread soon. But yeah good job on your car
