Will be rougher than what you have now but with the new struts/shocks you will be fine. I just replaced mine and did end links and im amazed at the difference in feel and all of the clunking is GONE. My BWoody links were toast.
Don't be surprised if you need top hats. You might wnt to see if your local parts place at least stocks them.
Are you have this stuff done somewhere or doin it yerself?
I love the white I wanna see a whole car pic.
I'm doing it myself 1313, which is why I am asking so many questions. Like I said, I'm not a pro but I'm relatively mechanically inclined and as long as I have the answers I need, the rest I can do on my own. Youtube and google are our friends. Also, obviously MUCH cheaper given the highway robbery that is shop labour rates.
So okay - I was REALLY hoping not to post any pics of my car until further along the project completion line but you've been super helpful so I guess I will.
I do love yer color though, Id love mine in white.
black is sexy too though
So WAY back in 2010 when I joined this forum my whole self-proclaimed claim to fame was my ION's colour. As you likely know, Redlines only came in Black, Red, Blue, and Silver. What made me unique was because I factory ordered ION3 with the available sport appearance package, I was able to get regular ION colours but with the awesome look of a Redline. And just like that, a WHITE factory Redline is born! (Well, not really. I still need to save up for this Chevy Ecotec 2.2 or 2.4 Bolt on Supercharger Kit | ZZPerformance
Once I get it I will proudly apply my Redline decal - something I've been waiting years to do!
Here she is last year in Vegas (drove her all the way down there). Just a sneak peak, you'll have to wait until my further mods and upgrades are done before you see her in full!
p.s. Black IS sexy though, agreed. But can't argue with the uniqueness of being one of the few different coloured RLs!

17" was as big as I could go Chicken man - remember on IONs we're lameo 4-lug hubs and that's the biggest I could go (no 18s on 4-lug). Still, pretty sweet wheels that I purposely am not letting you see in profile yet!
