have to put air shocks on the back, had to put big knuckles in between front spring with breaker bar they can be found at autozone or advance. if u had to big of a tire on 24 inch rims u may have to trim some of the wheelwell for turning

none of the stuff is safe really all of it stresses the ball joints. the cups will do it but i heard its a pain in the ass. they fit under the coil spring so u would have to drop your lower control arm

even though im against this type of modding to these cars. heres a link to a good web site for these types of parts. the one rim shop over here that my brother in law works at says this is where they buy there parts for customers who want to install large rims.

http://universalcarlifts.com/advanced_search_result.php?make=34&model=3439&year=1998

EDIT: just went thur the site, they have a 10 inch lift for the CV to run 32" rims

Is this a show car or a daily driver? Why lift a car? With that out of the way...whatever you do, make sure it's safe and roadworthy. Don't endanger the rest of us, and yourself, just to make your car look "cool." and
