Got a few suspension parts going in this weekend! I believe it's all ZZP, all came off of a donor car i recently purchased.

-Front STB bar
-Rear STB bar
-Front GMPP Sway bar
-(Rear GMPP Sway bar [still on the donor car])

Besides the suspension, also swapping in a dual piston caliper setup from an '06 and new axle shaft! And possibly the Hurst shifter, if it ends up working correctly!

Lots of great stuff you're swapping!
But, I say ditch the resonator! I don't have the GMPP exhaust, but I was a lot happier after getting rid of my res.

Lots of nice snags there, and the price was right I would bet, "Winning" you might say.

It would be cool to get the Hurst shifter to work in your Monte, you see I have the B&M shifter handle in my Monte. Took a lathe and drill press to gt it to work. Good luck,

Please post how the Sway bars feel in your car after the swap, I have been eyeing them on zzp's website for a few weeks now and would like a real world feedback on them. I never trust most of the feedback on the websites as you never know if they posted it themselves lol

@Jason; It's actually a Corsa Catback system. From the sounds of the guy I got it from, he says the resonator on it is practically hollow anyway..not sure if I'm going to run it on mine or just sell it. If I do keep it, definitely gonna touch it up with some grey high-temp paint!

@Greg; can you post a pic of yours? Was it difficult to install?

@ohara; will do! Didn't get to it this weekend since the dual piston caliper conversion turned out to be a nightmare!! Hopefully going to get around to it this week sometime since they're pretty easy to install (front one anyway, trunk requires alot of flexibility )

Mostly hollow vs not there.... I say no res

But, at the end of the day, that's just my opinion, you have plenty of goodies to play with from your donor car....
