I want a complete list of everything you ordered, where you got it from and detailed installation instructions.

I went off GCs list

ok, from helping mantiskungfu with his pedders/ss/tc swap, you want/need/should get (from top to bottom) :

new saturn ion redline strut mounts
0ttp spacer (glue it to the bottom of the strut mount to aid assembly)
strut mount bearing (comes with mounts)
0ttp spacer
cobalt tc top spring perch
pedders spring
cobalt tc strut
new end links of your choice

you don't neccessarily NEED the end links or new strut mount, but if the little screws holding the strut mount together snap, you're stuck. if you can't undo the nut on the sway link(common), you're stuck. so, you might as well be prepared.

we also discovered that the spring coils hit each other near the top, causing a clunk in the front. a little bit of rubber hose helped.

you'll also want to lube the rubber spring isolator on the cobalt perch to allow the pedders spring to settle evenly.

that lube will also help with getting the rear springs onto the bump stops.

I didn't order the shocks and struts cause they only have 35k on them but I got:

From CED
Ion redline strut mounts and bearings-last they had
Cobalt perches

From ****
Cobalt Pedder springs
I found a discount code and got em for 322$

From PowellMS
Powell ring sets.

excellent choice re: Pedders...not so much on staying with FE3 struts. IIRC, FE5 valving is 30% stiffer than FE3...much closer matched to Pedders spring rate.

The thought is pure ambiguous

When you say spring perch, you mean the top spring seat or the insulator?
