New member with questions
Hi everyone, ive been looking over this site and others for a few days and decided this one has the most to offer. I just bought my dream car after looking so long for it. 2004 GT convertible tripple black with less that 60k miles. In my searching ive found answers to most of my questions (ie) seat belt alarm and key remote programing. I only have a few questions left. This was a one owner adult driven car that absolutly pampered this car but it does have one big issue I need to deal with pronto, the top. Its soooo slow going up and for the first foot the passenger side lags behind and all the reading ive done leads me to want to start with the fluid level in the pump and possably a leaking ram.. Is it cost wise a good option to just remove the current set up and replace it with the electric rams? 2nd question. The car only came with one key and I need a second so I went to walmark to get one cust and was told its a chip key and its $50 for the key and programing of the chip, now the dealer wants almost $100 for the key and programing so the question is, is the walmart programing of the chip enough to make it a reliable key? I also want to lower the car about an inch but ive ran across a good deal on some quality 2inch lowering springs, but im worried about other issues coming up going that low like C/c and shocks and such. Can I lower the car 2inches with no issues or do I need to find a 1 inch kit? Im not looking for a tuner look, just a little lower for the tucked mussle car look.
As far as my plans for modding the car im getting an K&N cold air kit and a power tuner for a little extra when the college kids here want play with there tuners, other than that im just going to black it out with smoked head and tail lights window tint and some debadgeing. Thanks for all the future help and sorry for the looooong post.. Gods blessings
