This rust free New Mexico Grand Prix was purchase as a sleeper to build, a performer to ride and enjoy on an every day basis . First task was to upgrade traction and cornering handling. To do so, original wheels and bolting units were removed and replaced by a 1995 Chevrolet Police Pack car . In fact all the underneath suspension as complete real axel came from a 1995 Chevrolet Police Pack with a posi 3:23 ratio New disks brakes were added to the 4 corners as well as a bigger front sway bar from the same Chevrolet to upgrade the original one. To secure all this improvement, new performance shocks were installed and as well as new poly-bushings all around. This set-up use new disk brakes in the rear with a larger sway bar to match front set up handling package. Installed also are 4 new 2 inches drop Belltech coil springs to sit the car low.
