    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Hi guys, here's a couple pictures of my 2005 Sunfire, it has a Tein Basic coilover kit, '00-'02 Z24 Wheels with Falken Ziex ZE-502 tires, I also removed the rear window stoppers and the badges from the front doors.

Still have to adjust the rear a bit more, it's sitting a bit higher than I would like. My old GA GT in the background which now belongs to my dad, he also has a 40th Anniversary Edition Grand Prix and my mom has an '05 Grand Prix. I may also be buying a '98 GA GT. Never enough Pontiacs. :dancingpontiac:

The last generation Sunfire looks so crazy as a sedan to me! She looks really nice, though; clean, simple, well done. I have never seen those particular Z24 wheels on our generation Sunfire, either, but they look surprisingly nice. Is your emblem black or gray?

Welcome! Good looking Sunfire! Clean!

I LOVE the chrome Pontiac wheels on the GA, they always looked great.

Looks good! Welcome. Sadie (valid) and I saw one of those Sunfires in 2008 at the 25th Anniversary Fiero show. Bit rare for us to see a phase 3 Sunfire sedan in the states =P.

Welcome to FP.

I had no idea they made Sunfire sedans with the newer nose. I thought you did a swap before I saw the year.

Anything planned for it?

The GAGT...glad to see some still love those.

Thanks guys, the emblem actually is supposed to have a carbon fiber look to it, but unless you're within a couple feet of the car it just looks grey which is fine because I'm not a big fan of CF anyway. Havoc, those are also my favorite wheels on that generation of GA's.

I was just in the states a couples weeks ago or 10 days and was surprised at how few of them there were down there, I didn't see any sedans.

Welcome to FP.

Anything planned for it?

Not too much, probably sway bars, an intake/exhaust and maybe a neon rear disk swap + better rotors and pads in the front.

They didn't actually manufacture them as sedans here in the states; the one Mark and I saw in '08 had come over from Ontario. I like them, though, but they weird me out because I'm not used to seeing them!

I have the AEM CAI, I like the sound and responsiveness. I haven't gotten to my exhaust setup yet, but that will happen likely later this year. I have begun gathering parts for a Neon rear disk swap as well. I also have sway bars that need to be installed. Haha. We sound like twins!

All in all, it sounds like you have a good plan for her. Very reasonable modifications for a daily driver, which is why I've picked mostly the same ones for my car, as well!

Sway bars won't be much help on the stock, rubbery springs.

Eibach springs on Tokico struts are a solid combo.

Never knew that...learn something new everyday, and great minds think alike. :lol2:

The stock rubbery springs aren't on the car anymore and yes they are I have a set of Eibach Sportlines in the garage and was ready to buy Tokico D-specs when I came across the coilovers for an alright price haha.

Yes and lol as I said in the first post I'm going to bring the back down a bit more but our roads around here suck, I think CAA actually voted my road the worst in the province but I'm not sure, but yeah it's not really practical to be much lower.

I've seen cars much, much lower survive on the horrific roads of Long Island, you'll be fine.

Of the 6 roads in the county that made the top 10, I live on one, my gf on another, another connects our roads, and another I travel several times a week. It sucks.

Oh my. I don't blame you for not being lower! I'd hold off on those sway bars until they hopefully get to work on some of your roads, too! :lol:

Thanks, welcome to you too lol

Valid, the fire would be an antique before it got sway bars if I waited for them to fix the roads around here lol the road work around here is as bad as the roads themselves.
