Hello I was wondering if anyone out there has upgraded to 22" wheels on there 00-05 Impala. If so what kind of mods did you have to do to your suspension?

Hi, I have a 2006 Impala and want to know if these are good exhaust tips for it. They look great in the pictures like they fit the bumper perfectly, but has anyone done anything like this to theirs yet?
Link to the tips

Ordered mine from a very helpful seller on ebay here in Toronto, Canada. HE went to a dealership for me to make sure the chrome exhast tip would fit and look ok on my '06 Impala LT.
Should be receiving package today ....i will let you know if you are still interested...

I'm asking for my sister. Please let us know if they look like the picture and total price paid. They seemed a little pricey on the web site referenced. Thanks!

I received.. and now have the chrome exhaust tip on and it looks absolutely great !!
They are exactly what you see in the picture ..great quality
and no welding required with just 3 screws holds them firmly in place. Ordered from cadillac performance in Toronto...
2 for $60.00 on ebay ...much much cheaper than GM dealership.
Hope this helps...

Those are some great looking mods. I like the contrasting colors to accent the new pieces you've added. I've looked in the GM Performance Parts website and not found anything like what have have installed. I'm particularly interested in the upper strut reinforcing crossmember for the front and rear. If you have a link, would you mind sharing it? Did you also change the struts themselves? What have you observed in handling changes after the installation of them? (I'm curious because I installed similar components along with Koni struts and springs on a VW GTI back in the '80s; made it corner like it was on rails.) Again--it looks great!

Don't worry, I have a crime deterrent installed.
As far as the strut tower braces, check out this link where I got most of my info.
Don't listen to the part about buying bolts in the first post. You don't need to. You'll see what I mean towards the end of the thread. I know it's long, but there is alot of good info in there. If you have any questions after that, let me know.
Oh yeah, I didn't change the struts, just added the braces, and yes, she handles like she's on rails.
