Wondering if anyone can give me a fairly complete parts list for the suspension on an 87? I'm looking to redo mine, as it's time now, and going through parts was just wondering what everyone else did first time. The car is a 3800 S/C car. 87 GT with bone stock suspension all around, and as you can imagine, it's tired and squeaky and having a hard time keeping up with me! Any info is appreciated.

No, it won't be stock. I want to lower it and go all aftermarket. I have looked through Rodney's stuff and also the other listed site. I've also looked at the Fiero Store. A complete kit like TFS offers would be nice because it is the kit. However, there are other components such as control arms, brakes (obviously), and some steering components. What are necessities to start with for a parts list? I know where to get the parts, I'm asking opinions, I guess, as to what other members have done, what has worked well and what hasn't.
TIA

My 87 gt has full poly bushings, new tfs bolts, kyb shocks up front with rodneys lower balljoint with one coil of the spring cut out. Also raised the bumpstop to keep travel. Kybs in the back with aurraut coilover kit, sway bar from an 87 front mounted in back, all rodney balljoints front and rear. Handles like none other. Its low on 18x8' wheels with 225/40 r18, and 245, 40 r18. A lot of swearing to remove stuck bushing bolts but all worth it when you toss into a turn.
